Blind Mickey’s Blues, 1997
William T. Wiley

In Blind Mickey’s Blues Wiley adopts the urban myth of a cryogenically preserved Walt Disney as a metaphor for technology employed for selfish ends. Wiley superimposed the humorous image of a blues-singing Mickey Mouse over a cryogenic tank inscribed with his song, all of which floats like a satellite above a map of the world, implying that the sometimes silly choices we make can indeed have global meaning.
