Flyguy Triggering His Own Motion Sensor

2010, nylon, fan, plinth, motion sensor.

A flyguy (one of the familiar dancing inflatables that wave people into carwashes and fast food restaurants) has been moved into the gallery and hooked up to a motion sensor. In this tragicomic installation, he writhes on the ground, making heartbreaking convulsions in front of the motion sensor. If he were to stop for a moment, the power would shut off and he would fall still forever.
