“Do Not Touch Chair” by Dominic Wilcox:

A line wire sculpture of a chair made with a single, continuous length of wire. Try to move the metal hoop around the chair without touching it. If you do touch the chair the speaker in the plinth will announce ‘Do not touch’. Dominic Wilcox was invited to take part in the inaugural exhibition of London’s The Gopher Hole gallery entitled ‘About a Minute’. The premise of the exhibition was to ‘consider the fact that thanks to decades of exponential hyperactive consumption, the time that someone visiting our gallery will spend contemplating your piece is likely to be less than 59 seconds.’

That circuit board under the unit looks to me like a recordable greeting card. Can anybody who recognizes it confirm? [via Core77]
