This Life-Size Skeleton Will Vibrate Itself to Death

Artist Agelio Batle has created an interesting installation called Ash Dancer. The project isn’t literally made from ashes, it’s a life-size skeleton replica that was made using graphite. Essentially it’s a giant pencil in the shape of a skeleton that lies on a vibrating table.

That table vibrates at a high frequency and makes marks all over the table that is covered in Vellum paper. The idea is that the bones of the skeleton will draw a faint remembrance of itself, and gradually disintegrate as it turns into black dust.

All that will remain are the lines, smears, and smudges left behind on the paper. The art installation will be on display at San Francisco’s Jack Fischer Gallery from November 5 to December 26, 2016. I wonder how long it will take the skeleton to completely disappear.
