Sorry I forgot to upload my post! Here is my post for the final version of action at a distance.
I created a simple pulley system with a weighted rope and two dangling globs. The intended effect of the installation is to create a sense of imbalance between two people. The two people involved must work together to maintain balance or create motion.
The globs are made of stretchy fabric with ruffled seams constructed on the overlock machine. When the glob is in a stretched state, the seams extend to be nearly straight. When the stretchy fabric bounces back up, the seams ruffle.
This installation is simple, but is intended to be engaging. There may be some silly connections to the human body, but that’s not the overall purpose. I wanted this installation to be entrancingly playful.
