Lipstick Enigma by Janet Zweig

‘Lipstick Enigma’ is a computer-driven sentence-generator developed by Janet Zweig and Franklyn Berry that uses lipstick tubes as pixels. The sculpture is made of 1200 resin lipsticks powered by 1200 stepper motors, controlled by 60 circuit boards. The sentences generated by the machine are programmed by the artist and alter every time motion is sensed in front of the unit. These sentences combine engineering language with phrases found in beauty advertising.
