Bush Lying Machine. George W. Bush Automaton/Kinetic Sculpture. Georgia: A. la Torre, ca. 2005. Wooden, metal, acrylic, and fabric coin-operated animatronic sculpture incorporating an electronic mechanism in a wooden cabinet, topped with a wooden bust sculpture of President George W. Bush. The case decorated with patriotic bunting, and the president’s head topped with a comical cowboy hat bearing his nickname, “Dubya,” in metal lettering on the front of the crown. When a coin is inserted, the wheel of “lies” rotates into the figure’s mouth as its nose grows longer and longer, and audio from the handheld game “Bop It!” plays. A knob beside the wheel allows the user to “stop the lies.” Approximately 28 x 18 x 11”. Sold with a quantity of printed “lies,” as issued by the artist. Working.
