Tableau: Distraction


Three representative 1950s kids sitting at desks: (left to right) Cub Scout, Invisible Boy, Duck and Cover Girl. As previously stated, two altered books on shelves above represent contemporary distractions of social media.

 

Formal boundaries of tableau are established by the clock at upper right (stationary at “5 minutes to midnight,” Nuclear Time; only the red second hand moves) and Fallout Shelter sign at lower right, behind Duck and Cover Girl. A 45 vinyl record that Invisible Boy holds in his raised hand marks median point between these two other circular markers.
