Cory Arcangel - Modified Dancing Stands (via coryarcangel)
These sculptures are made from 2 over the counter ‘Dancing Stands’ (the tacky kinetic product display stands you can often see in down market stores) which have been modified to spin at slightly different speeds. When my modified stands are placed next to each other they go in and out of phase about every 4 minutes. I first showed a version of these sculptures in my show “Creative Pursuits” at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. Below is a video of a version of these sculptures in action at The Museum of Contemporary Art Miami (along with Dj Icey, a nod to Miami). ps - If you are into phasing see my video Sweet 16 here.
