VEHICLE #3: HELIOTROPIC BENCHES (FOR BEAGLE II)
Vehicle #3: Heliotropic Benches (for Beagle II) is a set of five carbon fiber benches, which motivate themselves towards bright spots in a given space and takes the investigation started with Vehicle #1 to its il/logical conclusion. These more-than-fully functional benches exert their autonomy, problematizing the assumed relationship of the user to the object. They rove around until their is sufficient light on their solar panels, then stop and charge their batteries. If moved into the shade to be sat upon, they spring back to life and move back into the sunlight when relieved of service.
