PARTY MACHINES

Party Machines are architectural-scaled, short-term paper-based works. Each is an installed network of dyed paper spans, where the strains, stresses and dependencies form a web of relations between parts and whole traced in space. The works references political organisations, or party machines and the balance of tensions and forces struck within a self-supporting system. The drawings seek to express in real space a palpable sense of agonistic force and identity, of contending actions and objects.
