Mary Sherman
La Matin de la Nuit / Le Ballet Mechanique
2005
Oil, newspaper, timer, motor, aluminum, music box, buzzer, light

14 x 12 x 5 feet



This piece is comprised of five discrete paintings which are programmed to move at different, sequenced times. They move along an aluminum framework, creating a variety of sounds. Each movement trips off a specific sound or light, rhythmically and metaphorically suggesting the cacophony of life’s daily grind.
