San Francisco's Capp Street Project was founded in 1983 as the first visual arts residency in the United States dedicated to the creation and presentation of new art installations. For his 2007 residency, Vancouver-based artist Tim Lee created an exhibition influenced by Steve Martin's first comedy album, Let's Get Small (1977), and Neil Young's seminal electric/acoustic album, Rust Never Sleeps (1979). Answering Martin's now-famous quip from that album, "You just can't play a depressing song on the banjo," Lee mastered Neil Young's maudlin "My My, Hey Hey" on banjo and then installed a recording of it in the Wattis Institute elevator.
