HEAD INSTRUCTOR is an anamorphic sculpture made of 144 hand-painted glass strips.

The piece is placed on a rotating platform through which four fragmented images assemble every 90° turn. The glass strips are stuck into a wooden base with laser cut slits.

All fragments of the images were painted separately on each strip with the same colors used for traditional stained glass windows. The rotating top part of the piece is 61*74*61 cm.

Video and scoring: Thomas Medicus • Camera: Marvin Smith.

No, not Man as Industrial Palace… but a chicken! From the 1930s. Via Shorpy!

“The hen with the mechanical internal organs surprised visitors at the World’s Poultry Congress in London by giving a brief lecture on how she utilized her food to make eggs. Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.”
