February 3, 2017
A new temporary outdoor sculpture by Dane Mitchell is on display at Connells Bay Sculpture Park in Waiheke Island, New Zealand. Mitchell's installation, titled Stealth Transmission Tower 1,is a functional cell tower, which takes the form of a manufactured pine tree that cloddishly camouflages to its surroundings in an attempt to hide in plain sight. This large and highly conspicuous tree transmits a radio signal across the park on an FM radio bandwidth, that can be tuned into by visitors, on an endless loop.
