The inspiration Martin Creed

I have very much enjoyed some of the works of Martin Creed. I feel it applies to my own work of sequence and system.

Work no. 223

Work No. 223: Three metronomes beating time, one quickly, one slowly, and one neither quickly nor slowly.

Work no. 180

Work No. 180: Largo, larghetto, adagio, andante, moderato, allegro, presto, prestissimo.

Both these works show sequence and system, which is very important to my own work. What I also find interesting is that even though the object themselves are quite static, they are brought to life through metronomic movement. There is movement traveling from one side to the other, a change of pace.

More interesting works can be viewed at Martin Creed’s official and unofficial website.
