A monumental, floating, polygonal platform (approximately 25 feet per side), situated in District of Columbia waters directly adjacent to the Pentagon. The structure slowly rotates, propelled by small electric motors, and is equipped with an on-board sound system that plays an edited program of contemporary and historic audio recordings highlighting instances of public address and free speech in the District. Audio sources were researched and compiled from the National Archives.
