Father # 3784




"Father #3784", H285/80/40cm, 2006-2007.


In "Father # 3784", an enormous father figure is swinging his daughter - represented by a stuff doll at the end of his robotic arm - around
in a slow motion manner. The arm was made from three different motors which works together to swing, lift, and throw the doll in the air.
I created the figure of the father in a vast and massive way, inspired by monumental art. I wanted to show a domestic intimate moment in a
monumental and public way. The controlling and programming of the arm was made with a joystick. The viewer could move the arm around
slowly and contribute from his/her own vocabulary of movements and emotion to the memory bank of movements of the piece.
