PROJECT: Theatrical prop
CLIENT: Srećko Borse | Exit Theatre
The installation consists of electro – pneumatic device which activates three injections.
It was used as a stage prop in a play Faustus’ Module Re-Linked at Exit Theatre in Zagreb and simulates an execution of an actor.
Over the years I have build a bunch of weird and strange projects, this isn’t the weirdest, but it has its place in that list. I was commissioned to build an execution syringe prop, but had no idea how the thing looks, and in conversation with the director it was described how it needs to look for the play. Three huge syringes and some system to push them, it needed to rust easily and have a medical feel. Also, it was meant be easily operated, but in the same time to be really sturdy device.
This was the first time I decided to use a CNC punching machine instead of usual CNC milling machine and it worked like a charm.
