Closed Loop
slate, steel and a motor  -  48" x 84" x 48"
Closed Loop is a simple experiment. In this experiment, a slate wheel slowly turns beneath three scribes set at different heights. As the outer scribe begins cutting a path into the surface of the wheel it gradually sinks deeper into it. After an uncertain period of time the scribe will cut deep enough to allow the second scribe to begin cutting its own path. Eventually, the outer scribe will cut completely through the slate, separating the outer ring from the whole. Through this process the scribes destroy the slate wheel creating new forms.
