33. MICHAEL BOSWORTH
The elements of a pinball machine are deconstructed and exaggerated to create a series of interactive works. The viewer is invited to engage with the installation- you are the one who will initiate a mechanism that is designed to keep a ball in motion as long as possible. The act of playing pinball is connected with the human struggle against time in this multi-dimensional installation.
