CLOSED LOOP AND METAL ACTANT
Hanging spatial scultpures
In this piece Metal is approached following philosopher Jane Bennett concept of an actant, a non-human agent having its own force and vitality. The hanging sculpture is an experimentation with the complex behaviours of matter to embody the paradoxes involved in a structure in which small localities, cluster, fine meshes and nodes act as shaping entities, holding the flow of long distance connections that link complex ecosystems together and allow them to exist in a double reciprocal movement.
Presented as a visual heterarchy, Closed Loop Network refers to Bruno Latour article Some Experiments in Art and Politics. The installation works on the idea of paradoxes and phenomenas through matters. Questionning how the dichotomous concepts of spheres and networks can be experienced simultaneously through the agency of metal.
Using light, the lightness of materials being sensitive to the air in the room, metal tension and clay weight as shaping and controlling actors of the structure.
