Project Description

Translator

 
A pair of girl’s legs with a screen for a body is suspended on a track between two armchairs each having a video projector for a head. Viewers hand crank the chain mechanism and drive the girl from one side to the other. Like a child caught between two feuding parents or a political mediator, she becomes the site of exchange, physically embodying the conversation. 

Mixed media: aluminum legs, plastic bowl, garage door opener structure, steel, bicycle chain, hand crank, two video projectors, two half-scale chairs, two media players, 14-foot long table, approx. 72 × 42 × 168 inches.
