This project was installed by Mark Nelson in participation with Chicago's Pilsen Neighborhood 2004 Cultural Festival sponsored by the Pilsen Chamber of Commerce. Nelson, one of several artists invited to display artwork chose the irony of a Tennis court and the war on on the Middle East as an opportunity to have an open public dialogue. Nelson used the metaphor of trendy neighborhoods being acquired in conspicuous ways under the plight of urban renewal for the use of the military as a vehicle of Sovereign Renewal. The construction was 22 feet in height with a kerosene torch burning at the top and a K-mart "take-a-number dispensor at the height and access of pedestrians.
