By using any found, cheap, recycled, discarded, donated or obtained objects we can get our hungry hands on, we assemble interactive kinetic sculptures and ask viewers to participate rather than spectate. With our work we strive to provide a primary existence experience that, although temporary, sparks an interest in a new way and concretes the experience of art outside of aestheticism. In these times of attention deficit youth and media driven fear, we attempt to use our tools to create a spectacle that is only truly absorbed in person. The Regurgitator is an interactive kinetic sculpture that spins the participant at 40 mph backwards in a wheelchair, powered by a pulse jet screaming at 120 decibels.
