Moaning Robot Heads Shatter Psyches at Miami Art Basel
The work features three horrifying disembodied heads (video after the break) that, thanks to computer-controlled servos and a set of speakers, "sing."
Our own Leila Brillson had traveled down to the show to see what's what, and we sent her a text ASAP: "Check out Mellor's stuff at Lombard-Fried Gallery... now." Then we sat back to wait for her nightmares to begin. Unfortunately, she was unable to report on the work from Mellor, as she was reduced to a hysterical heap, cowering in the corner, within 10 seconds of laying eyes on the horrible heads. We did manage to get a quote out of her, between the sobbing and hyperventilating: "What you guys don't see is the fact that they don't really sing. They moan, like possessed hell-fiends, coming after your bowels with a vengeance. Low rumbling. And the waxy faces... "
If you want to ensure that you have night terrors for the rest of your life, the video is embedded below. As for Leila, the doctors say she should be fine after a few rounds of intensive therapy. We can only send our best wishes and hope she gets well soon. [From: Engadget]
