The clan will be especially delighted to learn that the combination of exceptional genius, perseverance, and artistry of Joe Pentland is bearing fruit. Here is his extraordinary creation, Horizontal Line 264, permanently installed in the atrium of the Connecticut Department of Public Health Laboratory, Rock Hill CT.

This is so exciting. A second outdoor installation of another of Joe’s creations is in progress at this site. What talent! Congratulations Joe. I have the feeling that we will be seeing a lot more of your wonderful creativity in the future.



  1. Joe,

    This is absolutely mesmerizing; every public facility where people have to stand in unending lines should have one of these to calm the nerves. Not only is attractive but entertaining and soothing.

    Bravo zulu!

  6. This is a meditation, ballet, waves in the ocean, a swing in the hammock, wind in the trees and so many other good things …

    Much love,

  7. Congratulations, Joe. It’s magnificent.

    We all know that Joe’s a genius. My question is: Is there anyone in the family smart enough to figure out — without help from a kibitzer — how it works?

    I suggest the LC come up with a suitable prize for the correct answer; no recycled Christmas presents or grocery store coupons.

    I’m pretty sure I have it figured out; I’m withholding my answer until the LC announces a suitable prize.

  8. Uncle Calvin, I am not authorized to offer prizes on behalf of the clan. As a trustee you know that very well. I do have a slightly used tambourine (only used in Catholic church services – of course no other church except Catholic ones use tambourines so the ‘Catholic’ adjective is slightly redundant…) which would be quite nice…

    So now, how does it work?
