UFO Baby Mobile
This interactive moving sculpture, invites the audience to confront a lucid dream, as if one were being abducted as part of an alien invasion.
It is juxtaposed against surrealist elements, and coaxes sensations of uncertainty around a distant speculative future, carrying with it apprehensions stemming from the fantastical nature or complexities of a supposed extra-terrestrial encounter.
By creating this supernatural atmosphere, we hope to transport the user to a place that invokes those haunting childhood memories, capitulating on our fears and imagination.
The piece plays upon notions of control; it presents as a novel form of Dadaism, that harnesses light, semiotics and kinetic motion.
