  Once someone has spent 10 or 20 seconds speaking to the ear piece, the arm has brought the bronze mask to cover the lower half of the face. As soon as it is quiet the arm starts to drop revealing the previous facial expression. The mask will continue to be held up as long as someone is talking to the sculpture.


Size : 18-in. tall, 12-in. long, 14-in. wide

Materials : Walnut, steel, bronze, electronics, electric motor, sound

 

When plugged in, this wood, bronze and steel sculpture is activated by sound. Next to his head is an ear horn protruding from where an ear would be if he had one. When someone talks into the ear piece, the arm starts to move up bringing a bronze mask slowly in front of his face.
