Continuously looping 2 Channel Video and sculpture consisting of 2 iPads mounted into recycled gold picture frames mounted upon found antique chairs.  In the right channel artist creates a sculpture from 426 nails salvaged from one chair and randomly dropped one at a time on a burlap cloth also salvaged from that chair.  In the left channel artist the deconstructs this sculpture also one nail at a time.  The duration of each video differs by precisely 30 seconds, the length of a standard television commercial, yielding a constantly shifting temporal relationship between the two channels.
