Closed circuit

About Closed circuit

This work is inspired by patterns and cycles which appear in nature, the built environment and human experience, and an interest in the seemingly chaotic circumstances from which these patterns arise.

Made from discarded computer circuit boards, this series considers the life cycles of resources employed for human endeavour. By adding another event to that life, attention is focused upon the continued existance of the object, long after it has been cast away by its initial user. As with all entities, the direction the object's life takes is dependant upon its nature and the environment in which it is placed. The patterns which have emerged in this series are the result of interaction between the object and the artist's perception of the object.
