Title– ‘Interactive Self-Stirring Spoon’ Installation 2015. ©Angie Duignan 2015

Details– Arduino, Motor Shield,Hacked Servo Motor,Neodonium Magnets,Mechanics, Ping Sensor, Audio Looped,Speakers, found/reclaimed Objects.

Description– The tea cup sits ideally on a small table until an audience member walks close to it, triggering the tea spoon to stir apparently unaided. Depending on the proximity to the tea cup the audience member can make the spoon stir faster or slower creating the illusion that the spoon has a life of its own.
Statement– This single piece is one of a series of ongoing investigations into “The Secret Life of Objects” with reference to Objects and Memory. The work also alludes to the paranormal and magic in a playful manner. The anti clockwise stirring motion of the spoon suggests wider forces at work in the piece and makes one question reality,perception and expectation.
