Skeleton draws itself to death

At the Jack Fischer gallery in San Francisco you can see (until the end of 2016) a skeleton.

But instead of being bone-white, it’s ebony-black. And instead of lying inert, it jerks around, moved by the vibrating table on which it lies.

This life-size skeleton has been cunningly crafted from a lump of graphite by Agelio Batle.

So as it moves, it draws on the vellum sheets beneath it – until the ‘pencil’ becomes no more than a stub.
