Alexander Bates - Chimney

9:10, 2008, Experimental
Alexander Bates is inspired by the human desire to create order out of disorder. His practice can be seen as both a reflection of this need and also through the use of scale, materials and context in individual pieces, a way of undermining and rebelling against this compulsion. "Chimney" references both common experience and personal habit ("smoking like a chimney"), which is reiterated by the work’s formal qualities such as scale, title and its endless repetition.
