Part of the Society of Stickpeople series, the mini marionette is a small, fully functional, interactive puppet.
The marionette’s head is an icosahedron – a form familiar to most mathematicians – and the rest of its body is made up of cylinders jointed in various ways. Occupying the space between whimsy and foreboding, the abstract human form does not embody a particular gender, age, or other demographic. Thus, viewers are left to create their own story for the stickperson as they view and interact with the work.
