New Museum: Urs Fischer Exhibit

Posted by

Urs Fischer: Marguerite de Ponty was on exhibit at the New Museum from 10/21/09 – 2/7/10. Among many works of art was a tongue that stuck out of a hole in the wall when a visitor walked past. I worked with Kammetal to redo part of the existing mechanism and detail a control system that used a PLC (programmable logic controller) to activate a solenoid when someone got close to the sensor. A big thanks to the staff at Automation Direct for their help detailing the components that were needed.
