Uncertainty

The calculated chaos of a Rube Goldberg machine is mesmerising to watch; a complex narrative is portrayed through energy and motion, typically culminating in a satisfying finale. This project explores passages of such an event, where each segment was constructed and documented; yet no catalyst was provided to see its kinetic tale unfold.

Having a psychological need to complete a task, I found that creating these scenes caused anxiety; without seeing the potential energy released, doubt formed as to their truthfulness. With each image there is evidence of possibility, evidence that allows the viewer to speculate what could be; yet for me they resonate incompleteness and a sense of uncertainty.
