Categorial Novum VII
This series of drawings, ‘Catagorial Novum’, are physical representations of the theory of emergence wherein a simple action, much repeated, results in the creation of extremely complex systems. The human being, in this instance the artist, acts as an unseen organising force giving rhyme and reason to an otherwise mundane process.
The images themselves are made up of thousands of individually pencil drawn triangles and take a considerable length of time to complete. The image that results as the output of the process is random and dictated by whim, physical limitations, and the constraints of time.
