Finitude Drawings

More information +

Each Finitude drawing is a series of lines and marks created by an outdated, robotic vacuum cleaner. The robot has been hijacked, modified, and made to perform a task not fit for its intended purpose. It is confined within boundaries far smaller than its intended range; as demonstrated by the back and forth sweeps and constant rotations.

The works are born from the idea of human finitude; our limits of time, space and ability. And how, throughout life, we metaphorically hit brick walls, back track, meander, and sometimes move in circles trying to figure things out.

The naming convention of the series utalises gene symbols, such as Finitude (A2M) and Finitude (BSCL2). The genes referenced are all related to ageing, which in itself is a symbol for the natural finitude of human life.
