This piece began with some sections cut from a wooden headboard.  The face I discovered there was unsettling enough to inspire a whole creature around it.  Once under way I decided to resist my typical inclination to think in terms of motors and electric components and focus rather on a piece with more fluid, gestural lines that would imply movement rather than demonstrate it.  The result is a little more unsettling I think.  The head can also be positioned to face in different directions.

 

Materials:

Car transmission, tea kettle, chair parts, snack trays, head board, decorative shelf, clogs, motorcycle exhaust parts.
