Punching Ball, 1989

Video sculpture
Monitor, rubber expander, steel spirals, video player, video

In co-production with Gudrun Bielz

A monitor is hung up with rubber bands and steel spirals, and thus installed as a punching ball in the exhibition space.

A video shows the world globe seen from the orbit. The globe rotates and passes through a process of resolution and restoration as a loop. When the viewer hits the punching ball, the dynamics of the image create the illusion that the impact changes the image/the world globe. In fact, it only changes the direction of movement of the case in respect to the monitor.
