In 1978, mold-breaking queer artist Robert Rauschenberg collected objects near his Florida studio and used them to create a series of six "Publicons" - icons for the public. He envisioned them as stations, much like the Stations of the Cross observed by Christians, but they resemble religious objects in design only. In function, they are objects of secular "worship" and playfully comment on the superficiality that has replaced spirituality in American society.

Station I, which we are privileged to have in our collection, opens to reveal a canoe paddle painted with gold leaf and adorned with a blue light bulb. The patterned fabrics of the interior seem to represent the materialism of contemporary culture, with the blue light calling to mind the "blue light specials" held by retail giant K-Mart.
