Attraction Overview

by Leslie (Les) Bruning — Omaha, Nebraska

MEET & GREET is one of a series of sculptures that I refer to as “street conservations.”  In a civil society, we need to talk to each other in an open and friendly way if we are to co-exist peacefully.  In this sculpture, the faces come face-to-face with each other as the interactive cranks are manually turned.  This artwork demands participation to create the daily activity of facing our fellow citizens, and the turning of the cranks will also trigger a sound track of four short sentences that will be repeated each time the crank restarts.  The sentences are:  Effort has its rewards.  Rewards give us pleasure.  Pleasure wins us friends.  Friends make life rewarding.  $ TBD
