This work confronts chaos with causality and involves a performance on my part around a mechanical machine that requires my continual intervention.
The latest machines I’ve built provide the ability to trace distorted, deformed (topological) space, while I constantly have to adjust and guide it during the process.
Under no circumstances I wanted to lose my involvement, because then we would deal with a sort of robot or automaton product that does what it was programmed for. At that time the only creation would be the assembling of the robot and its programming.
A new element appears here: the performance or dance with the machine that requires constant attention and a reaction at any time to the mechanisms that trace chaotically (not randomly); every derivation, no matter how small, completely changes the situation.
The tools as well as my performance and my intervention evolve with every drawing, often the machines break apart during the process and I have to repair or replace parts, sometimes everything.
Throughout this process the trinity medium-machine, paper-subjectile and subject-body move actively, reactively and interactively to result in a drawing whose final result is unpredictable and irreproducible.
