Public Speaking was a series of artists’ billboards that appeared over the course of three years—2004, 2005, and 2006. Works were selected for this temporary exhibition to spark curiosity, conversation, and debate. For its second season in 2005, Clockshop invited artists to respond to a series of photographs titled “Destruction of House #1 by Atom Blast”, taken in 1953 in Yucca flats, Nevada.
