Rotor
2004
Work in Progress

The piece is rotated at a rate of 1 revolution every 3 minutes.

A circular aperture at the centre of the disc gives visual access to a chamber whose open end picks up and displays the colouration and brightness of a succession of light sources.

The use of a hi-fi turntable as a motor ensures that the piece is silent in operation.
