Cradle is a beautiful silver steel structure engineered to reproduce a gentle motion for an adult to lie down and be soothed to sleep like a baby. In place of a human’s manual handling, the work’s machinery arms and legs support the user’s weight and enact a rocking movement. Bearing the weight of an average adult, Cradle demonstrates an act of comfort powered by industrial forces and technological prowess. By bringing a private moment into the public sphere, the work provides a cradling experience that transforms paternal caretaking into a universal act of care, unbounded by age.
