Work of art I would like to make


My degree show work was all created using some kind of mechanical process, photography, silk screen printing and GPS technology, but all the pieces still had evidence of the hand, the faces were drawn and the objects in the room cut out by hand. If I were chosen as one of the New Sensations I would create fully automated machines which would document not me but a simple object’s movement through space and time (such as a ball hitting the floor). The machines would each do one documentative task, for example one would be responsible for photographing the event, one timing, one recording the number of times it hits the floor, and each would have a method of recording this, be it as simple as a mark on a page. Each ones results would give no information but together you would be able to fully understand the event that took place.
