Smashy Von HammersBot is a simple, yet effective, interactive sculpture. When the button is pushed (and anyone can push it), the hammer comes down with tremendous force onto the thick steel pad below it. Anything placed under the hammer will be crushed! (or at least damaged).
I built Smashy in 3 days, expressly for the show “Power Transmission: The Art of Christian Ristow and Christina Sporrong” at the Encore Gallery of the Taos Center for the Arts.
