Symets 1-3 (2010)
Symets were part of the Vestiges Park exhibition during the Glasgow International Festival in 2010. The exhibition was located in an industrial wasteland in Glasgow which was completely overrun with Japanese Knotweed.
Each Symet was a pod constructed of woven lead sheet. A solar powered electronic circuit was place inside each pod. The circuit caused a small pendulum to strike a crystal goblet inside the pod, causing a chime. The frequency of the chimes was directly proportional to intensity of the sunlight striking the solar panel.
The Three Fish (2004)
This work was component of a collaborative installation between myself and Jakob Ankarsvard.
The installation was a collection of works controlled by a central computer. All aspects of the exhibition (including the gallery lighting) were randomly activated and deactivated by the computer.
The images below are of a 'sponge car', tethered to the ceiling by it's power cord, and placed on a floor covered in petroleum jelly. When the computer would 'turn on' the car, it would violently and vainly attempt to free itself from it's power source.
