Sisyphus is a computer-controlled kinetic device that draws with a ball in the sand. Sisyphus work is both an interactive happening for the beholder and a transient piece, a piece as well as a medium. Watching Sisyphus slowly draw its path encourages contemplation and meditation, a specific aim of its creator, Ho.
