Recently completed work

“The Sound of One Wheel Spinning (After Duchamp) “2019.

This recently completed sculptural sound piece is entitled “The Sound of One Wheel Spinning (After Duchamp)”. Over the past year I have been developing ideas for new works which are more purely sculptural, although still constructed from familiar domestic objects. This work makes a clear and direct reference to Marcel Duchamp’s famous Bicycle Wheel “readymade”, replacing the physical action required to rotate the wheel with a motorised control, whilst also adding a sonic element. Two children’s toy “exhaust systems” have been attached, so that the silent operation of the Duchampian wheel is now a thunderous roar.

I am pleased to announce that the Film and Video Artists’ Study Collection, formerly located in the Electronic and Digital Arts Unit (EDAU) at the University of Central Lancashire has recently been transferred to the Faculty of Media & Knowledge Sciences at the University of Malta in Valletta.
