Full Turn

Using a very engaging mix of good old physical engineering twinned with digital image generation this piece has a satisfying kinetic presence. The excitement we experience in the presence of speed is rarely evoked through the incomprehensible speeds required for digital calculations alone. The palpable acceleration and power behind these spinning screens brings an elusive but essential element to this work. The images and consequent shapes explored really enhance this sense of mass and force beautifully. It is perhaps a shame the artist felt the need to add the closing, figurative animation as it mitigates against the purity of the idea.
