Faster!

This machine was a response to a call by the World Sculpture Racing Society in Boston to make sculpture that would exhibited on the street and in the context of a road race, where the 'best' work would be determined by racing rules (win, place, and show) and not subjectivity.  The hand is a cast of my own and the tip of the pen, controlled by three cams (x, y and z axis), moves in three dimensions while writing "faster!" on an index card.  The whole thing is powered by being pushed down the street.  Obviously, the faster the cart is pushed the faster it writes.  Warning: The feedback loop between creator and creation can result in dangerously fast speeds and certain death.
