Kissing Machine, 2012
Metal, Helmet, Motor

This is the 2nd machine in the Suggestive Mechanical Expression series. This interactive sculpture allows two participants to engage in a mechanically assisted kiss. An electric motor pulls one participant closer to another when a switch is activated. After a kiss the participant in control of the switch sends the other backwards and the experience is over.
