Speaker boxes stacked in sculpture at SAM


BETTINA HANSEN / THE SEATTLE TIMES

A visitor to the Seattle Art Museum checks out a new installation by artist William Cordova called "machu picchu after dark (pa' victoria santa cruz, macario sakay y aaron.dixon) 2003--2014" made of over 200 speaker boxes Wednesday October 2, 2013. Cordova is a Peruvian-born artist and the exhibit is in conjunction with the new "Peru: Kingdoms of the Sun and the Moon" exhibit that opens October 17th. The speakers were donated by art museum employees and bought at area thrift stores and constructed into a deliberate monolith. According to the artists' statement, Cordova moved from Peru to Miami as a child and was struck by the junk Floridians threw to the curb, particularly speaker boxes, reminiscent of the cajón drums of his native country.
