Jaguarlúna, SP, Brazil:: Lucila Machado Assumpção,, 2008.. One-of-a-Kind. Fan: 8 x .1.625 x .5"; 18 leaves (slats of the fan); thread binding with removable screw closure. Book: 3 x 2.625" closed; 12 pages; single-sided accordion contains photographs showing possible transformations of the fan. Acrylic paint. Fan slips into felt case with velcro closure. Bilingual text (Portuguese and English). By manipulating the fan in various ways (using the booklet as a guide) the arrayed slats present 12 transformations, each with differing words and images. For example, stacking the slats and spreading them reveals one transformation. Flipping the fan reveals a different set of words and a new image. Moving the screw, which acts as the fan's pivot, from one end to the other allows different possibilities. The words provide focus; the images provide focus and flare; the physical transformations provide (initial) frustration and (eventual) delight. An array of possibilities.
