Tom & Jerry
  • Tom & Jerry
  • Material: bicycle wheel, 8mm projector, wood, dryer, ball, plastic pipe
  • Year: 1996
  • Place: Shibuya Parco, Tokyo

Two balls are propelled about a clear pipe with the use of wind power, and as the balls advance towards the projector when they fall, light waves appear on the ceiling; the balls are used to represent the game of cat and mouse played by Tom and Jerry from the well-known American cartoon, Tom & Jerry. In this work, the two balls chase each other back and forth in a never-ending game of cat and mouse.
