These artists play the role of inventor / artist in presenting performative sculpture - each work performing an individual function, whether it is the cycling of ferrofluids or the stirring of ping-pong balls. Some pieces call for viewer interaction while others simply want to be watched. Seemingly self-conscious, each piece expresses a message through its function, beyond what it could as a static object.
