The Watchers


2007 -- 8x18x3" -- wall hung

The Watchers comprises 6 small stepper motors with doll heads attached. The heads survey back and forth at slightly different speeds. When a Watcher detects an object it trys to localize it by retracing at a slower scan speed. It also sends a signal to another Watcher which will speed up and try to find the object, and in turn signal yet another Watcher.

The same sort of scanning speed synchronization as that of the Chorus Line is used here to cause the Watchers to scan at different speeds.
