660 lbs revolving track + 1 climber = circular drawing. A physically demanding performance driven artwork that creates a circular drawing through mechanical proxy.
The Stationary Climber is a vertical climbing track that rotates as I climb it, which rotates a drawing table on its axis in circles. As I climb the track, a drawing jig mirrors my up and down movements on the rotating drawing surface. Contained within the drawing jig is a marker, which is linked via cables to both my arms, so as I extend either arm it causes the marker to move. The performance last as long as I can endure, but ultimately ends when a lever at the top of the piece is grabbed, which lifts the drawing jig off the drawing table. The Stationary Climber is a Sisypean tragedy for artists.
