TURN/ FOLD/ FLIP









TURN/ FOLD/ FLIP is an exhibition of work made in collaboration with Ciaran Begley, and Consuelo Cavaniglia.

The work was developed both individually and in dialogue. Consuelo and I working on painted book-like forms, and Ciaran producing the folded plywood structures.

It has been a great experience working collaboratively, and the outcomes of the work have highlighted our shared concerns of geometry, structure and space.

TURN/ FOLD/ FLIP will be on show until 18/ 10/ 04 at Archive_ 5 Eliza Street Newtown.

Quotients and Remainders


Ink and acrylic on board, with fluorescent gaffing tape.

This painting was made from the offcuts of a previous painting on board, and being a fragment of the larger form, it's edges follow the same underlying geometries.

Working with these offcuts is a process similar to collage, with the pieces there ready to be arranged. This allowed for a sense of spontaneity and experimentation, that resulted in this open ended, unexpected outcome.

Video 1:01




iPhone 4.

These short experimental videos rely on the ubiquitous presence of my mobile phone.

Having the phone with me, almost at all times, allows me to record phenomena as I see it with a casual immediacy.

By continuing in this practice, and imposing a vague set of rules (pertaining to movement, framing, and duration), the necessary time or opportunity is given for a sensibility to emerge.

Beams


Ink and acrylic on board, with fluorescent gaffing tape.

This prototype amalgamates previously disparate elements into a unified whole. The thinking behind units like Threshold, and Spacial Order converge naturally through drawing.

The drawings became a diagram for construction, and through this process a bifurcation towards a new series is made.

Gel Geode







Transparency (cellulose acetate), sticky tape, plastic shopping bag, and scented styling gel.

This geodal structure is a prototype, a continuation of the series through variations in form, and material. The polyhedral shell is constructed from 72 transparent triangles, with the vertices highlighted by a gel that sits between the walls and the lining.

A platonic solid, this icosahedral figure is an entity from the metaphysical realm of the Forms. The abstract structure is an object of the mind revealed, like a shared hallucination. A form constant, one of several geometric lattice patterns, which usually only emerge during altered states of consciousness.
