In 1887, Emile Berliner invents the gramophone. In 1916, radios with tuners are created. In 1983, massive boom boxes such as the Sharp GF 777 "Searcher" appear on the scene. (In 1985, Austrian rock singer Falco records "Rock Me Amadeus.") It's all connected, as clearly outlined in this beautifully realized, super fresh, and medium-sized digital print by Lyle Owerko for The Boombox Project.
