Abstract

An unstable entropic sculptural structure radiates from one of Catalyst’s structural columns. The construction made from a hodge podge of salvaged timber lengths was built by balancing the timbers, jenga like, on each other to test the structure’s tipping point. The structure will always be subject to collapse. Failure is an integral part of the process.The structure can always be rebuilt but it will never the same again. The sculpture is accompanied by a set of magnet drawings.Entropy is an exploration of how physical forces acting on structures can be seen as political processes by the way they affect their stability. It stems from recent work investigating space as a physical and political arena where I make and animate forms relating to observed and theoretical structures being studied by contemporary physicists and astronomers.
