behind the scenes
because it's more post post-modern
The Object/Subject is a pair of almost identical anthropomorphic constructions that enact a mating ritual. Each of the Object/Subject pair consists of a cube made of uniform smooth panels that are tautly bolted in place and supported on four posts with cross-bracing. The legs are just a little taller than the height of the cubic torso. Each of these two Object/Subjects has a communication disk on top and a side arm supporting a miniature version of itself with window/eyes and spiky ears. Where one figure has a single wedge-shaped projection on its "front" side, the other has two wedges that create a space perfectly formed to receive the wedge of the other figure. The two are positioned to suggest their intimate communication and immanent coupling.
