Graduation show 2014
The work is inspired by astronomical machinery and apparatus from the 1800s. It acts as a kind of simplified projector, in the form of a contraption set into motion by the cogs. The ‘image’ passes through the lens, and, in its compulsion to remain unchanged, becomes transformed. The wheels turn slowly around, like the machine’s cyclical breathing, creating a hypnotic, trancelike rhythm. Through sound, light and movement, the materials take on a life of their own.
