Made with wood from Plum Island, the three ties hanging from the twisted wire mimic the three crumbling nails protruding from the panel. While the nails have deteriorated faster than the pressure treated wood, the stains they leave behind will remain. I found the ties buried in the construction site of what is now the new Media Lab at MIT. There were countless remnants from the building that were ultimately just covered with turf and sprayed with seed. Makes you wonder what lies beneath all those pretty lawns.
