Developed from the artist’s wider interests in the notions of chance, order, control and the role of the systems in our understanding and perception of the world, Timecaster (I) can be seen as an experiment in recording time and making it visible through a mechanised drawing process.

The Timecast drawings are taken from a large scale installation which operated continuously throughout a three month period. Each of the Timecasts traced out a delicately drawn graphite form, recording the mechanism’s motion through space and time.
