Who's in charge here?
mixed media assemblage
perished rubber monkey (gift from Richard Sampson) in old clock case (gift from Lesley le Grove)
music boxes, clock chime, cogs & wheels.
by Dale Copeland, 2007

This one took a long while to make ...the wind-up handle makes cogs turn, music boxes play, and occasionally a clock chime clangs... all good fun, but the mechanics of it took a while to get right.
It's like modern life, all the bells and whistles, but rather scary substance.
Like politics or religion, looking at modern life and wondering how people can believe in any sort of governing good ....
