Oscillator (1992); click for an enlargementOscillator (1992)

Movement sensors, speech electronics;
6x10x4"; 7 lbs.

Status: collection of Bruce Bettinger

This piece uses digitally recorded natural speech, and infrared movement sensors.   When a viewer is sensed within about six feet of the piece, it says "I love you," "You're special," "Pick me up," etc.  If the viewer lifts the piece, it shouts "Put me down!" "I hate you!" "You make me sick!" etc. Once on the floor again, it resumes its enticement speech.

This piece is free standing, requires seven feet of open space on at least one side, and a 120v wall outlet at the floor within ten feet of the piece.
