Cameron Robbins: Solar Loggerheads

24 Nov 2018 - 27 Jan 2019

Solar Loggerheads , commissioned by MONA for Cameron Robbins’ 2016 solo exhibition Field Lines , is an elaborate art-making machine that wrangles the opposing forces of creation and destruction through a continual act of drawing and erasing.

Harnessing solar energy for the pen, and mains electrical power for the erasing, the instrument is locked in eternal conflict. Solar Loggerheads exemplifies Robbins’ role as facilitator of the creative forces of nature.
