Moving Bench #2

Moving Bench #2 consists of two benches positioned in the middle of the exhibition space, at first glance looking like average benches in a museum institution. Each bench is positioned parallel to the architectural form of the space. They are motorized, and thus reposition the seated visitor by moving a calculated distance when activated by the weight of the body.
