"State of Limbo"

  • Year: 1997

  • Dimensions: 7'H x 7'W x 1'D (each)

  • Materials: metal, paper, motors

  • Remarks: These two sculptures have blades much like a fan, but the blades are not tilted - they do not create air flow. The turning of the mechanism does produce a subtle paper flapping noise. The sculpture spins at a rate that strobes to the human eye's perception of motion, thus creating a hypnotizing effect.
