Beach Ball Bundle, 2004

(120 beach balls), approx 8’ x 8’

120 clear beach balls are connected nozzle-to-nozzle to create a self-determined form. When played out, this simple set of rules, in addition to the inherent and formal properties of the beach-ball results in a bulbous complete circle.

The works in this show use game components such as beach-balls, shuttlecocks and Rubik's Cubes to create a series of works that refer to the structure of the ‘game’ as a way of exploring possibility, chance, and the nature of form.

Untitled series

(shuttlecocks, thread), 2004

A series of badminton birdies sewn together in groups of ascending numbers in order to reveal the resulting forms. The procedure of incrementally adding one birdie to the formation results in undulating forms, reminiscent of snowflakes or blooming flowers. Like finite math and molecules.

The Cock-Ball is the final form in the series, using 42 shuttlecocks.

Grey-scaled Rubik's Cube

Grey-scaled Rubik's Cube

(Rubik's Cube, grey vinyl stickers)
2” x 2” x 2”

The grey-scaled Rubik's Cube offers a simplification of the object, both formally and conceptually. Reduced to a ‘shaded’ white cube, the piece becomes an abridged version of the game wherein the red and green become the same shade of grey, thus reducing the number of possible permutations.

A document of my solution to a 2x2 Rubik’s Cube, move by move over the course of a year, until the puzzle is completed. The Rubik's Cube serves as a concise visual representation of how one negotiates a set of possibilities and generates a drawing in which colour patterns are dictated by practical and logical concerns, not aesthetic ones. The completed drawing represents one of over 43 quintillion possible solutions to the cube.
