Lifecycle (1993); click for an enlargementLifecycle (1993)

Black sand, blue light, speech electronics;
15x19x3"

Status: available

This piece has a cyclical 10 word vocabulary, which it speaks endlessly in a harsh whisper, at random intervals: "pain... gain... will... way... time... rest... choice... hope... point... end..."

The speech frequency is switch-selectable; at openings and other situations in which the average attention span is short, it speaks every ten or fifteen seconds.   Alternatively, it can be made to only speak every ten or fifteen minutes.
