Staring Match

 

2017

Wood, metal rope, acrylic rope, wire ties, slinky, drum head, cymbal, stand, vibrating motors

 

This installation is formed of a pair of oddly matched objects kinetic sculptures which differ greatly in both auditory volume and structure. Using materials that allude to human presence, displacement occurs through playing around with the gravity in suspension and motion. The motors move freely in predictable but also random ways, that glitch at times. This motion lends itself to a lingering gaze as the movement repeats itself, a staring match.
