This whimsical piece brought together a geometric form built with randomly applied component pieces, an interest in discarded tube televisions and the increase of embedded screens and digital media in public spaces. The combination resulted in a TV ball. TV ball was rolled down the Old Man River coulee, beside the University of Lethbridge, Alberta, an act that brought the sculpture to its end.
