• Short Summary

    Weird and wonderful artworks by Bruce Lacey are made from found objects.

  • Description


    Artist "Professor" Bruce Lacey makes art from junk.

    Three people look into the window of an art gallery, we see them from inside. There are bubbles floating in the shop. C/U of a strange machine that is pumping out bubbles. It has one of Bruce Lacey's strange automatons which features a male dummy's head and hand and various bits of machinery. We see Lacey fiddling around with his work of art. Another mechanical man is seen, his head spins around. Bruce makes a new mechanical artwork featuring the top part of a skull and two eyeballs stuck on poles.

    Narration is quite funny. "Clap hands machine, you have export value. The nation is proud of you, let's have proud music." Various shots of Lacey's weird and wonderful artworks. Too bizarre to describe in full. They feature found objects and plastic body parts.

    A man walks past Lacey's gallery carrying a large piece of metal. Lacey asks him if he can have it. The man agrees and hands it over. Lacey walks off with it.

    Note: two spellings in paperwork - Bruce Lacy and Bruce Lacey. See also CP 699 - NIGHTMARE ROBOTS (*PM0427*).

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
