Peter William Holden – Vicious Circle
Hours and dates
- From Oct 27 to Oct 30 from 10:00 to 18:00
The ephemeral nature of kinetic sculpture seems an appropriate place for my ideas, emotions, and hopes. A space in which I can focus on ways to blur the boundaries between cinematography and sculpture. Combining computational devices with mechanical elements, I create mandala-influenced sculptures, but divergent from a traditional sculptor, I consider these kinetic sculptures solely a medium! Only a necessary first step in a process to achieve what I believe is the true-focal point of my work. That being the transitory animations, choreographies, and sounds while the sculptures are in motion.
KIKK in townVicious Circle
Inspired by The Industrial Revolution and the subsequent changes in human development. A process that led and will lead humanity to both heaven and hell. I aspired to try to capture the paradox of this duality by making an intimidating/brutalist machine. “Vicious Circle” is a manifestation of a machine-like society militaristic in fashion. With its relentless drive for conformity, this machine acts out its role. Oblivious and undaunted by either its own destruction or the destruction around it. Maybe, it dances to the beat of progress. Or does it dance to a different tune? With outstretched arms beckoning the observer for redemption! Yearning, someone will notice the beauty contained within its motions, the rise and fall of the hands as they form swarms that flock together like birds in a choreographed dance, a possible virtuous circle.
