The Wandering Mind of Jesus
(A conceptual art installation)
The Wandering Mind of Jesus is a conceptual art installation designed to be exhibited in a large gallery. The installation consists of a large statue of Jesus, and a convoluted platform that meanders around the gallery and intersects with the head of the statue. Mounted to the top surface of the meandering platform are a pair of electrified tracks. Whenever visitors to the gallery enter into the exhibition room, the top portion of the head of the statue begins to slowly move over the electrified tracks, on small motorized wheels.
The top portion of the head of the statue continues to move randomly back and forth, stopping, and starting, as long as people are in the exhibition room. When it finally returns to its original position over the statue, the top of the head stops for a short time, before it resumes its random convoluted journey.
