Randall Harrington’s piece “The Bomb” stands parallel to Neil Postman’s cultural critique of technology as not fundamentally a friend of humanity, foreshadowing doom in the age of endless entertainment. Harrington is a sculptor and painter known for his high-concept fabrications of recomposed weaponry, “Toastasaurus” herds, and eerily human robots. After years of assisting big-name installation and performance artists and working in film-set design, he found his niche in metal and mixed media when he moved to an industrial area of Los Angeles in the mid-1990s.
