My focus on Tim Hawkinson (video)

For my research paper, I have decided to focus on the piece “Emoter” by the artist Tim Hawkinson. The piece itself is individual pieces of the face, such as the mouth, nose, separate eyes and eyebrows that are connected by motors that move the separate pieces and shape the collective face into different emotions. I want to focus on how much power over the emotions that the face has, and how this machine with it random inputs reflect our face muscles and how we sometimes cannot control how it shows our emotions.Emoter video┬áThis video displays how the piece itself works.
