OBSOLESCENT OBSTACLES

 

This giant pendulum like object stands atop a platform at the beginning of a particularly difficult stretch of the obstacle course. If the contestant hesitates a second too long, the motivator swings down and propels them into action. Everything about the motivator intrigues me.

Motivatorn (The Motivator) is based on an obstacle from the tv game show "Wipeout!". This work consists of a recreation of the obstacle based on my sofa. This work in turn led to a series of obstacles.
