Artist Statement:


    Vortical Filament is an electronic installation inspired by the photographic series Geometrie Experimental. The early scientific photographer, Etienne Jules Marey and Franz Melde’s famed experimental device demonstrates standing waves on a string. The work evokes the lost tradition of the Baroque Tornitori (the craft of turning). Through the phenomenon of persistence of vision and the natural oscillation of rotational fields, the piece seeks to create a field condition of immaterial and ghostly waveforms in constant search for equilibrium within a seemingly unstable system.
