Work in progress.
Cut is an installation with my grandmother's stripped-down "electric scissors" at its center. The scissors are powered by a light focussed on a peltier junction, which translates heat into electrical power. The scissors are situated under a "virtual bed" a framework of wire (interdependent structure) which support a net-like bedspread made of long red hair (mine.) The scissors run unless the beam is interrupted by a viewer.
