This rather disconcerting piece of technology is on show this week at Art Basel Miami. For just $75,000, you can have Nathaniel Mellor's trio of ugly mugs (L-R: Deadwood's captain Joe Turner; John Wayne Gacy; Magwitch from Great Expectations) serenade listeners with a charming little ditty that probably goes by the name of "Freedom*."
Computer-controlled servos control the heads, which are, without doubt the 21st century version of the Dancing Flower, but what I want to know is, which song do you think they should be singing? My money's on Pussycat Dolls' Don't Cha.
*Sample lyrics: Freedom/ Freedom/ Freeeeeeeee-dom.
