    Smoking Bolts (2008)

Artist(s) and People Involved:



Artist Statement:

    Smoking Bolts features a cluster of machines that will take up occupation in the Artspace Gallery. Successively marking out different compositions and notations, they paint live in the space through an operational system run remotely by the artist in Auckland. The title refers to a clandestine operation in which ‘a special entry team breaks into an enemy installation and steals a high-security device, like a code machine, leaving nothing but the smoking bolts.’
