An aggressive military/aeronautical/biker-looking covered HD LED TV is attached to a docile vintage coin operated elephant ride. The base of ride is embellished with decals that combine racecar driving and aeronautic designs. The LED displays a close up video feed of the rider’s crotch with the trunk of the elephant protruding from their legs. The repetitive motion of the machine plunges the viewer back and forth towards his or her own image. In this piece I access nostalgia and notions of innocence in order to disrupt the individual experience.
