This sculpture, adapted from a French radio box (circa 1950s), plays one song, "I've Got the World on a String", sung by Peggy Lee. This is also the same song that is played in the video (above). The attached "man on a string" within the sculpture gives new meaning to the song's lyrics.
Other items attached to the radio box include porcelain busts (nurses?), early 20th century semi-erotic hand colored photos, two German art deco slides, miniature perfume bottles, and automobile tail lights.
