In the areas where the arts and sciences meet and overlap there is a good deal of spurious concillience. Using a form or a number system lifted from an unrelated branch of science or observation to give supposed meaning to an otherwise vapid artwork is an old trick and it never quite works. These pieces however work perfectly because they actually employ the forces and phenomena they reveal to create the revelation. In a finely resolved series of elegant mechanisms Moraes, like a composer using chance as a tool, sets in motion the tools which will reveal one phenomena whilst creating another. There is something hugely satisfying about this "contract" through which both physics and artist are seen. The act of revealing the physical forces at work here is as much creative performance as the by products are artworks.
