One Response to “FIGMENT: What are You Bringing?”

  1. david henry brown jr. Says:

    The Human Weeble Wobble was first built in 1994 for an event in New York called The Deviant Playground. The wobble came out of my earliest period of interactive art which was influenced by the Williamsburg, Brooklyn performance/warehouse art scene of the early ’90s(these days long replaced by consumerism and condos).

    In the time since the Weeble i have moved forward into an very broad range of projects, whose methods and aesthetics truthfully reflect the feel of each period of time that they came of age in. One common link in my works (and shared by the Weeble) is using person to person social interaction as a way to pierce imagination.

    I want to say thanks to Dana Voehl for her superhuman support in the production of the Weeble that was made for Figment 2009. Im looking forward to making some more! inquiries welcomed……dhbjr
