About this piece:
prone was inspired by the acquisition of a (still working!) cardiac pacemaker. The pacemaker supplies a tiny signal which stimulates a small solenoid under the plate of water. The light shining on the plate of water reflects on the wall, pulsating sympathetically. The placement of the lens, which focusses the light, also projects the image of the lightbulb onto the plate. This work was revised in 2000: the light source is now suspended, less earthbound.
