I made this drawing in my freshman year of high school (2008), inspired by the TV in my French class. As with much of the technology found in California’s public schools, this TV was a sad-looking mass of plastic and metal that never quite functioned the way it was supposed to. Various cables, bungee cords, and strips of duct tape precariously adhered this monstrosity to an equally broken utility cart. My assigned seat was right next to it.
I lived in perpetual fear that someday the cables would snap and the whole thing would topple over and squish me.
