THE SCOOP —————————————————————->

Before you say anything here folks, these albums were rescued from a vinyl holder box I found thrown out on the street…think there was a rather good collection in there.

Since childhood, I had always dreamed of this project, except then, they were like cd’s & very costly for a kid to collect. Therfore, "trashing" them would’ve been tantimount to TOTAL blasphemy!

I waited some time, but finally got the chance to do the project when I rescued these albums from the street. So many people come over & blast me for "ruining" these albums. And time after time, I explain to them that I actually saved them from the dumpster/landfill & managed to take things musical to another level by making them visual.

The debate continues…EYEWASH design: NYC, 2006 www.eyewashdesign.blogspot.com

F.Y.I.:

The artwork work is comprised of 70 l.p.’s. It represents some 56 taxes imposed on United States citizens, leaving room for 14, yet to come.

ASIDE: n 2005, the ILLEGAL tax on the labor of U.S. citizenry collected comprised: US$927.2 billion. Yet, the LEGAL corporate income tax collected was only: US$278.3 billion.

No thanks to Woodrow Wilson, in 1913, the Federal Reserve – a private, not a government institution – was created by a select group of extremely wealthy men. This directly took power from our own government and handed it to this small group of dominant banker$. The result allowed a then great industrial nation to be controlled by a system of credit, rather than actual gold bullion. Our citizens were forced to hand over their gold & to date, there has never been an audit of the actual gold. Therefore, there is no actual proof it’s there.

Also in 1913, the banker$ committed the most diabolical fraud ever perpetrated on the American people, by bribing Senators to pass the Federal Reserve Act without the required Constitutional Amendment. They did this during Christmas vacation, when many Senators were at home, celebrating the holidays with their families. This allowed for the unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act to come into being.

They were very clever & understood that whoever issued the money for America would control the government.

The U.S. income tax is a completely illegal instrument of totalitarianism. It is THE economic means by which our government manipulates its people, whilst placing our citizens in a condition of a lifetime of servitude.

We a country taxed from birth, until after death (inheritance tax), yet we are the only first world country without nationalized education or health care.

Over 500,000 Americans have no health coverage and thousands more are bankrupted from having to pay exorbitant premiums & non-coverage fees (nearly everything is uncovered).

Yet, people willingly hand over their hard-earned monies to the government in the form of an illegally collected tax. I invite you to look through the statutes & to find the law requiring citizens to pay income taxes. Because, when you do, you won’t be able to identify one law requiring wage-earning Americans working in private corporations, to pay income taxes. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO LAW STATING THAT AMERICANS MUST PAY INCOME TAX.

  4. I saw something similar done with several dozen telephones. The phones were all an identical style and different colours. It was about this size, mounted straight to the wall.

    It’a very neat effect – and I agree, you rescued them, not ruined them!
