How did Dubya get to the White House? This artwork incorporates a treadmill and a motion-sensitive mooing Texas steer. It is high political satire-comparing George Dubya to a used-car salesman in the way his campaign was conducted. As the viewer-participant approaches the sculpture, the steer will moo loudly-randomly mooing as one moves around the piece. The used-car dealership flags in the central collage are juxtaposed against the American flags flying at the top of the sculpture. Peek around the back of the sculpture-view Bush family nepotism.
