Unplugger by Nik Ramage

I like this little whimsical suicidal machine…

“My work consists of machines that either move or have a latent element of movement. Many works have a particular object at their core that is animated, subverted or celebrated. Some machines require intervention by the viewer, others work continually and others are static. Each has a character beyond my design.

They embrace uncertainty, fragility and the pointless. They have vague aspirations to utility, which are unattained. Some of them are built on a solid idea (unplugger), others take a more ambiguous approach (cube). This is technology from the shadows: absurd, paradoxical and on the verge of giving up.”
