‘Deluge Rotations’ isa
new body of work by Simon Finn. The works include, drawing, animation and
sculpture and are
a continued exploration into the variable syntheses between artist, environment
and technology. Finn utilises the
spatial and temporal capabilities of virtual representations as subject matter that
comes into being somewhere between experimental verification and poetic
The presented artwork’s
motif is an observation tower emitting a simulated liquid force from its core. The
observation tower is intended to have dual symbolism: the first being that of
power, oppression and its structural fragility, and secondly that of our
ability to witness future natural events through vision and data interpretation.
The violent toxic vortex flow being discharged from the center is emblematic of
an internal and social deluge of indoctrination.
The range of static
imagery generated through computation is staged and then re-imagined with the
hand, using traditional drawing processes, and advanced machinery. This process
allows Finn to observe an otherwise
unattainable rupturing of time and facilitate a faceted network of production.
