IAIN MACHELL   Drawings and Sculpture
"RELAX !" Site-Specific Installation at Mobius, Boston, MA
1999
video tape, rocking chair, audio
variable dimensions
RELAX! incorporates 46 hours of video tape, twisted into rope and woven into a 40’ x 30’ net, and a chair to create a sculptural environment that raises questions about personal history and psychological stability. Video cassettes have labeled titles that construct a daily narrative of a psychological journey. The video rope is woven into the seat of the rocking chair, suspended over the giant net. On the floor a tape loop plays “The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze” on a circus organ.
