Chompers (back)

Souvenirs: New New York Icons at Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York 2017

Unbeknownst to many, Sheepshead Bay is named after the now elusive Sheepshead Fish, Archosargus probatocephalus. A peculiar looking creature with a slight resemblance to a sheep’s head, the fish’s most notable feature is its human-like teeth. It is odd to find a set of chompers like this on a fish. At first glance you’d think they were photoshopped into real life. The Sheepshead Fish is like humans—omnivorous. Hence our similar teeth. But why limit such pearly whites to just humans and fish? We can share these chompers with other things—like our phones. Just plug the Sheepshead Chompers into the audio jack and go!
