The Entropy Pendulum and OutPut. (2015)

Daily, throughout the duration of the exhibition Getting Better and Worse at the Same Time, The Entropy Pendulum had a selected print from a photographic news archive positioned under its constantly swinging weight. Over the course of the 35-day showing, each photograph was scraped and rubbed away under the abrasive weight of the pendulum, then placed into one of the 35 empty frames on the gallery wall. The Entropy Pendulum Output was only realised and completed at the close of the exhibition.

The Entropy Pendulum makes reference to Claude Shannon’s concept of information entropy, whereby 'information,' 'surprise' and 'uncertainty' are inherent to the circulation of imagery and data.

This work is adaptable to the duration and theme of future showings.
