Potsdam toilets: blight or art?

Listen to this story
Drive through the village of Potsdam and you can't miss a small plot that's filled with old toilets. The property owner says it's art, while village leaders wish it would just disappear. A Clarkson University digital arts professor has used the idea as inspiration for a new exhibit.

Todd Moe talks with Clarkson's Steven Pedersen about Eaux D' Artifice at Creative Spirit Community Arts Center in Potsdam. Pedersen's show uses video, interactive art, and images based on the public toilet display to explore ideas of place and what it means to make art.
