Statement for “Vehicle in a Landscape” in “re:drawing” Oriel Davies Open.
This artwork consists of a legged vehicle roving across a paper landscape mark making. The walking and drawing limbs are elastic mechanisms which produce marks of varying pressure. The path of the mark making will be a result of the vehicle reacting to the created landscape it is placed in. The artwork investigates drawing through the unpredictable aspects of actuation and reaction in the device.
