Video by: Dough MacCash of the Times Picayune
Watch as Texas-based conceptual artist Dario Robleto describes a fragile drumstick he custom-made from the brittle glass called trinitite produced by atomic bomb tests in the desert. Robleto dedicates the artwork to the late rock drummer Keith Moon (1946 to 1978), whose explosive lifestyle proved to be too much for his breakable constitution. The drumstick, titled 'Your Moonlight Is In Danger Of Shining For No One,' is part of Robleto's exhibition 'The Prelives of the Blues'.
