    The sound before you make it, 2005, kinetic sculpture.

    Wood, plastic, paint, motor, strobe light, sensor, sound

    Sound sampled from Michael Jackson’s Thriller video (1983)

     

    Remixing a scene from Michael Jackson’s Thriller, this work employs the technology of the zoetrope; animating three-dimensional figures via the sequencing of movement and a strobe light to create the illusion that the disk is stationary and the zombies are dancing.
