Our USA touring exhibition opened at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry earlier this month.
This Paul Spooner piece, ‘Hungry for Love’ from the Fourteen Ball Toy collection is the most complicated piece in the show, as you can see from Paul’s original sketch. The waitress walks. The cart rolls. The sailor moves his arms, head and even throat, and the tray pops up at the end, to uncover two very wobbly jellies.
Each piece in this exhibition is labelled with it’s own Haiku. Here is the one for this piece:
Motion for its own
Delight. An automaton
Must not mean, but be.
Exhibition continues until March 2009.
