Empathy(?) Sculpture: Part 2

Okay, so I embarked on the idea of making this sculpture kinetic or interactive. So I figured I could wire it up before skinning it with Apoxie Sculpt. I wasn’t sure if I would light or animate the eyes or some structure on top of the head. I bought wire, a battery holder, mimi lightbulbs, and sockets. I almost bought a small motor. Anyway, I have a touch-switch on order. I imagined that if a viewer touched the sculpture, there’d be a reaction or low-key surprise.

So as I am building this piece, I realize that I am losing focus on the art aspect of the sculpture. Also, I am relying on the shape of the styrofoam head form vs. one of my own, total, inventions. So I may skip the electronics and theatrics and simply try and make a solid piece of art. And I am moving away from the empathy idea a bit. The journey continues…
