Stone Fridge

Adam Horowitz put together this installation art project behind my house.

 

Horowitz first approached Santa Fe in 1997; after months of meetings and a $1 million insurance policy he was given the go-ahead for his installation.

 

In the first year, he collected more than 200 refrigerators; the day after his project was approved, Horowitz was told his fridges had been "accidentally" bulldozed. He started again, putting ads in the paper and going to thrift stores, and collected 99 more - they also were bulldozed. "Political feuds, personal bankruptcy and large-scale vandalism" have slowed the process. Vandals even set off bombs inside the refrigerators, which are bolted to each other.
