"a sound machine", 2008
Found and bought objects
14" x 5" x 9"
Concept: The work plays with the tension / expectation that modern culture expresses toward the machine and the symbolism of the progress of technology. The work also presents the participant with the surprise of fulfilling the self-fulfilling prophecy that 'Something Will Happen'. Man's dependence on technology is comforted by the knowledge that it is encountered in a 'sound and non-confrontational' state.
Participate: Participants are able to chose to remain in tense anticipation of the piece's activity or flee for more stable surroundings.
