Right and Wrong (2006)

Two typewriters, utility tables, steel, solenoids, bicycle cable, plexiglas, paper, springs, misc. hardware, motion sensors, and custom electronics.
(approx. 34 x 37 x 22 inches)

Two typewriters sit side-by-side on small stands. When activated by motion sensors, solenoids near the base of each table trigger buttons on the keyboards in specific orders to spell out words. When the first motion detector is activated, the left-hand typewriter types the word "right." The second motion detector causes the word "wrong" to be typed on the right-hand typewriter, and the third detector, located between the first two, causes the words "right is" to be typed on the left-hand typewriter. Audience movement influences the resultant message each typewriter produces.
