Pocket Sardine

 

Pocket Sardine
2003/2020

6" x 5" x 4"

Lithotin cans, brass, wood, stainless steel, motor, fishing weight, knotted string

Originally hand-held and hand-cranked (and easily retrofittable to its original form), I added a base and motor drive assembly so that it could be remotely operated in a museum setting. Also it is one of an original edition of eight hand-cranked Pocket Sardines, each of which was unique.
