Oscilloscope (Trace)

(2006)

Location: The Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Award, Werribee Park, Victoria
Material: Aluminium, size variable

Oscilloscope (Trace) references  the electrocardiogram or ECG, a device that measures the electrical activity of the human heart. This activity is displayed on the screen of the oscilloscope and mapped in detail by a line known as the “The Trace”. The Trace moves and fades across the screen as it tracks the changing rhythm of life. A tonne of saucepan lids, pudding bowls and other redundant objects reordered as an oscilloscope becomes a symbol of the changing movement of people and things– the objects or ‘heartbeat’ of everyday life – recording life and waste as they are constructed and constrained by each other.
