Millionaire venture capitalist Christopher Burch wants you to know, he has enough money to build a $200,000 10-foot-tall television in his Southhampton garden; expressing an interest in using the massive screen for movies and sporting events.
Neighbors, and other members of the community are furious, explaining that a giant ‘drive-in screen’ doesn’t fit the ambiance of their affluent community.
Daily Mail UK: The proposals submitted feature scenes from the film ‘Avatar’ on the TV screens and the imags tower above the hedges around Mr Burch’s property.
Although Mr.Burch, ex-husband of designer Tory Burch, says the system will be used for art. A spokesman for the screen’s maker, of course, heartily agrees saying:
Scott Casselman, a spokesman for the screen’s maker, Multimedia LED, said the TV would be perfect for video installations.
‘How beautiful would it be to have a Monet in your back yard?’ he said.
Translation: Resident summer-ers of the Hamptons, think about it. Wouldn’t you love a Monet or Van Gogh in your back yard, too? It’s just a $200,000 art investment.
We’ll be looking forward to Southhampton’s outdoor back yard art museum.
