This practice is focussed on the production and application of rules to produce abstract works which reveal something about their underlying structure. These systems-based works also exhibit an emergent quality as they offer something new visually and unexpected aesthetically - revealed through the production process. The conceptual thinking and planning take place at the start of the process and I actively participate and manage the unfolding of the new work by following the rules.  This work expands upon ideas drawn from systems thinking and cybernetics, and resonates with Sol Le Witt’s statement, ‘the idea becomes a machine that makes the art’ (1967).
