A machine portrait: audio-activated 6-year-old girl's legs. As viewers speak to her, the legs begin a series of random behaviors from imperceptible movement to violent and fast kicking. Her actions leave permanent marks on the floor.
Girl's shoes, aluminum, motors, customized electronics, microphone, wood and plexiglass platform.
This piece is one of three sets of girls' legs that are all part of "Misbehaving: Media Machines Act Out," a project supported by the Creative Capital Foundation.
