Pleas: Do Not Touch
2007
neodymium, cloth, wire, wall
72 in x 72 in x 20 in
Two thin red wires each have one end fixed to the wall by angle brackets. At the other end of each wire is a small red cloth pouch containing very strong neodymium magnets. These two pouches do not touch each other, they hover in mid-air pulling towards one another but kept separate. Most viewers touch the piece (in spite of the title or additional signs). The title thus commands/refers to both the artwork and the viewer.
