Circle Drawing Surveillance System, 2001
installation, paper, toy train, mini-video camera, projector, charcoal

A train locomotive 
travels continuously in 
a circle harnessed 
with electro-mechanical
 appendages, including
a drawing arm holding 
black compressed 
charcoal to paper. The 
train rides on the first 
rail, while the two inner
 rails function, 
respectively, to power 
the mini-video camera 
mounted on the train 
while the other sends 
the real-time video 
signal from the camera 
to the projector. Video 
as memory of action in 
the immediate
 past—over engineered
 uselessness for the watchful creation of drawings on paper.
