The World's Largest: A Tape About Texas

  • The World's Largest: A Tape About Texas

  • Artist: Laurie McDonald
  • Year: 1979
  • Duration: 25:00
  • Country: United States
  • This tape is about larger than life monuments built mainly in small towns in Texas: manifestations of the “World’s Largest” mythology and mode of thought that exists there. The monuments, replicas of things typical to the particular area, are not only tourist attractions, but also representations of the idea of being the largest and the best, of the importance of achieving notability and ego fulfillment - ideas that typify all Americans, not just Texans. Produced in Providence, Rhode Island; Syracuse New York, and Texas.
