Machine for Carrying
the Spirits of Dead
Fathers to Heaven
1992

14”x 24”x 10”
wire, wood, motor and mechanism, bluebird
wings and bones.

Made for the anniversary of the death of my father-in-law,
this piece also resurrects an unfortunate bluebird that fell
into the paws of my cats. The machine flaps its wings
urgently as the propeller pushes it through the air,
apparently powered by the man in a white tux pedaling
the mechanism.
