Rodents Run Congress
New York artists Ian Snow constructed an 8ft x 5 ft x 4 ft model of the the famous Capitol Building in Washington D.C. and filled it with live rodents and calls it The Capitol Mouse House..
The provocative installation says the artists 'is a reflection of the public's low approval rating for Congress.' 'The fact is they, the elected members of Congress and both parties too by the way are driving us into debt" 'Children who haven't even been born will inherit a fiscal nightmare because of the greed in that building. today. They are stealing all the cheese.'
The Capitol Mouse House is actually a serious project aimed at getting young people and those people normally turned off by politics to think again about the role Congress plays in their lives.
