Abstract (English)

Adler’s experiential description of the installation focuses on the aesthetics, ethics and politics of Lyall’s espousal of symbolic “inefficiency.” The author argues that Lyall’s use of reference material maps its variable connections and provides new parameters for the sculptural object, thereby fleshing out the transparency of media culture. Lyall describes the origin of the installation, a research project on the life of Lynn Riggs, author of the story upon which the musical “Oklahoma!” was based. List of works. Bio-bibliography 2 p. 10 bibl. ref.
