VEHICLE #2: SOLAR STOOL (FOR PHILIP K DICK)
An extension of the inquiry begun with Vehicle #1. This work was exhibited at Gallery HO in Seoul, South Korea.
The stools that comprise Vehicle #2: Solar Stool (for Philip K Dick) can be seen as grown up versions of the small machines that inhabit Vehicle #1. While those machines roamed within the confines of the small table, these stools are allowed to roam free in whatever space they are placed. When sat upon the user literally cuts off the supply of energy to the motor which moves the stools. When the user releases the stool from service, light again strikes the panel, the stool tips slightly to one side or another and then scoots along the floor.
