Oracle

Thomas Doyle's avatar Thomas Doyle

Oracle was inspired by an episode of The Twilight Zone in which a young William Shatner is obsessed with a penny fortune machine at a small town diner. His manic behavior traps him as he demands more and more answers from the “mystic seer”. Artprize patron beware. The octagonal rounding boards along the top contain cast relief sculptures depicting eight different themes. Spin the wheel by turning the side crank to see what chance may bring you. What follows is a projected word or image seen through a 1950’s TV magnifier.
