Floor Marionette #1, 2016. Wood, concrete, foam, metal, rope and pulleys. 110 x 71 x 115 in.
This video is a documentation of an interactive sculpture, intended for operation by one person at a time. With this piece I invite the visitors to climb the stairs and take the position of a puppeteer, look down at the architectural structure and be in full control of its manipulation. In this piece as well as with my other interactive, marionette-like pieces, I attempt to bring back movement to seemingly still and permanent architectural structures, while questioning the role of individuals as audience, participators, activators or full manipulators of their space
