Nassau County 1982
The concept of a time capsule was always an interest to Fekner. Influenced by the Westinghouse time capsules buried on September 23rd, 1938 and October 16th, 1965 at the Worlds Fair site in Queens, Fekner explored the concept on his 4U2C, Deer and Question Mark stencil projects. At new home or other job sites, Fekner stenciled messages/images for future generations on reinforced concrete pipes prior to their being buried in the ground by construction companies. For Fekner, “the concrete forms were like a minimalist sculpture….a found readymade” without him having to fabricate and adding a piece of Plop art to the environment.
