Arabesque is a kinetic art work with its roots in both Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein and the alchemist’s laboratory. Life sized cast human body parts (incidentally casts of my own body) with translucent qualities bare their internal robotic mechanisms to the public. The wiring itself is an aesthetic expression deliberately integrated into the installation to bringing chaotic lines of abstract form to contrast with the organized symmetry of the body parts.
Arabesque when in motion becomes a time-based performance and can be viewed form a multitude of angles, revealing a kaleidoscope of beautiful patterns and shapes created from the human form.
