About the work
Tim Hawkinson
American, b. 1960
Follow

Multimedia artist Tim Hawkinson has used a wide variety of common materials, such as plastic bags, used socks, and discarded organic material from his own body, to make his kinetic sculptures, installations, and complex photo collages. He frequently incorporates multiple techniques and media, including sound, in a single sculpture or installation, combining the bodily and the industrial to create a physical world in which flesh and plastic are indistinguishable. The kinetic installation Emoter (2002), for example, is a photographic collage of Hawkinson’s own face, connected by wires to a machine that manipulates his features into expressions of emotion.
