Target Audience by ponsonby-britt Target Audience by ponsonby-britt
This was a piece I made about interactive art and how people view sculpture and installation art in a gallery setting. When you entered the room the red target would light up and the gatling gun would begin to spin. If you looked down the barrel of the gun you would see a different word or image relating to sheep on the back (6 in all).

haha it looks SO much better put together than it does all apart and covered with spiders in my basement. Let's start the bidding!

How long did it take? I'll start at the beginning... I was taking an Installation Art course at Penn State and our assignment was to build a space with 2 or 3 others then to fill it. So that tipi lookin' thing is what Emily Bowser, Jon Doutt, and I made out of Trex (a synthetic plastic/wood material used to build decks which becomes flexible if cut thin enough). Then we each got the structure for a week to do our individual installations in. So, I'd say about 4 weeks time (?) but I procrastinate until the last minute -so like 1 week actual work time.

How long did this take you? ...I can only imagine.

Man, there's so much ingenuity here, especially how it's so interactive. This is absolutely amazing.

lol, this is a great idea, especially with the pun of "target audience". a lot of them should be shot, if you ask me :)
