This large, part-interactive, kinetic, quadrupedal sculpture belongs to an ongoing series of sculptures called Beasts which are a hybridisation of all the skills in Molloy’s practice. Industrial furniture fabrication, stop motion puppet armatures, anatomy studies and musical instruments making are combined in this piece. Each work in the Beast series is a kinetic sonic sculpture that produces its own sound from within its body, unique to the shape and instruments inside.
