Fat Emma by Dennis Vance and Glenn Toppings: a suspended spherical fibreglass module, 5' in diameter and faceted in construction, rotating in an elliptical pattern, as well as revolving on its own axis. Designed to carry three passengers, it moves through areas activated by induction loops linked to the transmissions of four radio stations

Hydra Cross by Dallas Selman: a floor sculpture consisting of 2' square-based fibreglass modules which take their form from Black Night Rip.
