specially made for 'Domestic Appliance' an exhibition of kinetic
art with a domestic theme at Flowers east,
London from August the 1st to September 13th 2008.
for review in The Independant
came in the form of Jim Bond's 'Dust'. With this piece a never
ending dance was played out between an electro magnet that attracted
iron filings, quietly moved forward and then dropped them before
it's partner, a brush, opposite. The brush then, rather pointedly,
sweeped the filings back over to the side of the table the magnet
resided on. Like two siblings quietly tormenting each other,
this piece had me reminiscing about my own petty sibling squabbles.'
