Artist: Dennis Wells
Installation Year: 2013
Location: Corner of ARTC Theater overlooking Artivity Park
Inspiration: The original mannequin was an artificial child. It made me think of the song Wind-Up Toy by Alice Cooper. So I set out to create a larger than life wind up or clockwork child.
Description: The mannequin is a metallic colored robotic looking male child. It has a plexiglass window in the chest that allows you to see the primary colored gears mounted inside. It also has a large "wind-up" key sticking out from the back.
