ritornello10th January, 2012
composed of paper, wood, and electronics, ritornello exists as documentation of an ephemeral situation.
the work is programmed and the program alternates between repeated and varying elements. the code controls a fragile assemblage of various materials, and as it loops the assemblage decays.
while the work has no subject, its contents include the illusion of time’s control and the humility and wonder of making things in an atmosphere of change.
