ArtPrize 2012 Spotlight – Mr. Weekend

Okay, this isn’t a real “ArtPrize Spotlight” in the sense that we really intended.

You see, the original idea of our “ArtPrize Spotlight” series here on the The River website was to give you information, updates and help navigating the festival.

What this is, is me writing about an ArtPrize piece that I am really intrigued by.  In this case, it’s an entry called “Mister Weekend.”

Mr. Weekend is now a 15 foot tall sock puppet.  He used to be a robotic arm that assembled Chrysler 300 vehicles in Detroit.  Sadly, he’s obsolete now; for that job, at least.

As giant sock puppets go, he’s cute!

And the programmers did a great job of making him “human,” which means I think what he said around 4 minutes and 25 seconds in kind of sad!   He says “I am not happy unless I’m working on a project.  I am not alive.  But you are alive.  After the party, they will put me in a crate in the back.  Jesus.  Nobody cares that I welded the passenger side doors together for over 26,413 hours straight.”  Awww.  I’ll take you in, Mr. Weekend.
