An art object with more than one embodiment: Prototype A is a large-sized tuning-fork-like apparatus with T-bar ground spike mounting assembly for installation outdoors; Prototype B is a medium-sized tuning-fork-like apparatus top-mounted on a made-to-suit resonator box table with legs for installation indoors. The art object, herein named the invention, is utilized to produce an encounter between the viewer(s) and invention, the viewer and his or herself, multiple viewers, and the artist by way of the invention.
You and I: Method and Embodiments for One Tuning-Fork-Like Apparatus or More is comprised of two Prototypes, A and B, and a series of metaphorical instructional drawings. Prototype A in the foreground is intended for "use" outdoors but of course in this case also serves its purpose indoors. While Prototype B in the background represents the embodiment intended for "use" indoors.
Pictured here is a detail of Prototype A's monkey's fist and toothed clam-cleat assembly with clevis-pin split-ring safety release mechanism.
Installation of Prototype B with a view of the interior "superfluous passage" with its "uvular bronze weight".
Pictured here is a detail of Prototype B's two sets of half-ring eyes and the swivel-eye simple-snap system with accompanying cable sling for the attendant monkey's fist.
