This installation invites people to look into windows that activate the busts of philosophers, entertainers, rulers, and scientists both ancient & modern, turning the street into a living museum.  Viewers can enliven the likes of Mark Twain, Kanye West, Henry Ford, Jay Z, Einstein, Plato, Bill Gates, Augustus Caesar, Jaques Derrida, Marshall McLuhan, Jaques Cousteau, Julia Child, Queen Elizabeth, Max Headroom, George Clinton, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Sun Ra, and, in fact, all of Planet Earth, and, if you’re extremely patient, the entire universe.
