Pitch Shift, Bitumen and guy rope

Pitch Drop experiment 1 was concluded with the separation of the remaining piece of tar, but not before producing a series of anthropomorphic and painfully contorted shapes.

Is this work a work a failure. The pitch was always supposed to sag down, obstructing the stroking action of the weighted feather at first, but later dropping and annihilating both feather and pendulum as a result. Somehow this sculpture has failed to fail in the way that I had hoped for.
