“Air Conditioner” by Jon Bollo
It has been so hot in Chicago recently that these little boxes that sit in the basement or a closet all year, getting in the way, taking up valuable space and generally just sitting there like lumps, are suddenly being worshiped like ancient ancestors in a tribal ritual. After a hard day in the blistering Sun, people have been seen literally facing the machines, bowing to them, urging the cool air to wash over them.
As a tribute to these wonderful little machines, soon-to-be-famous artist Jon Bollo has created this drawing entitled “Air Conditioner”. Hope you enjoy it.
