Forcefield Gnome

This is a "Gnome" from Forcefield's 2002 installation at the Whitney. I received it in exchange for putting together a computer control system to sequence some of the motors and lights in the installation, including the car horn the blasted everyone out of their socks every 15 minutes or so. (The control system consisted of a VAXstation 3100, and an interface box that spoke RS-232 to the host and had an assortment of low-speed A/D and D/A ports.)
