Liminal Object #7 is a part of an ongoing series of black-and-white works utilizing simple computer animation. The images are displayed on a 14-inch monitor that has been removed from its housing and placed on a metal platform. Each work in the series involves two objects that violate each other’s physical and symbolic borders in unpredictable ways. Liminal Object #7 features an apple and a gyroscope. The apple sits in stillness while the gyroscope moves in, around, and through it in a repetitive interaction, its wobbly axis encircling the apple’s stem.
