Gallery of photos of a giant plucked chicken sculpture.

Attention Chicken! is a three dimensional version of the collage that goes by the same title.

Nicolas Lampert and Micaela O’Herlihy created a ten-foot rotisserie chicken out of polystyrene foam, hard coated, and then painted with latex paint and final coat of high gloss varnish.

In October, 2006 Attention Chicken! made a number of unannounced public interventions throughout Milwaukee at Bradford Beach, the woods, Walmart, National Ave, and other locations throughout the city. Reactions ranged from laughter to attacks directed at the chicken (three in one day!)

  1. “Reactions ranged from laughter to attacks directed at the chicken (three in one day!)”

    Attacks? What sort of attacks?

  2. Public “interventions?” What is it the public does that requires the intervention of a ten-foot foam chicken? I’m guessing the word they were looking for was “appearances.”

    “Reactions ranged from laughter to attacks directed at the chicken (three in one day!)”

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say it’s because everybody else in Milwaukee is just as bored as these people must be. I’m guessing destroying a giant foam chicken is something you could laugh about for weeks afterwards. It’s probably nothing personal.

  3. 1. Put a loudspeaker in it
    2. Station someone nearby with the microphone.
    3. When it gets punched, sob into the microphone.
    4. Film the crowd tearing it apart.
    5. Sell video on intertubes.
    6. Profit!!!
