Lou Hirshman

“Night Owl” – 1967

Click on image for an enlargement.

Though never Hirshman’s objective, many of his pieces serve a historical/archeological function. “Night Owl,” a mesmerizing bird sitting on a backscratcher perch, includes two 45 rpm records for eyes. These were small disc formats, usually with just one song, played faster than the larger 33 1/3 rpm albums with small holes. While the latter are still manufactured for purists and disco DJs, the former are relics popular in the 1950s and 1960s. In this artwork, the right 45 is the song “Turkish Delight,” a 1963 folk-dixie instrumental by The Village Stompers.

The collage also includes a double-purpose item for the owl’s tail – the churchkey. It has a bottle opener for caps (such as the assortment of brands that populate the bird’s body) still in use. And a sharp end, no longer to be found, used for making two triangular holes in soda and beer cans – one for drinking through, the other an air vent for allowing the liquid to flow smoothly.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something
    like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
    to your new updates.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Undeniably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly
    get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the
    whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
