Living in these times of extreme rationalism, where science and technology define our existence, I wonder about things that can’t easily be explained or controlled by rational logic. Like the deep unruly impulses that drive us. Things we are barely aware of, yet find expression in our behaviour, decisions and interactions. Although we project an image of control, in reality we are messy unpredictable beings with little control over anything. Eventually we die.
Remote drawing explores the rational/non-rational aspects of life, in particular the paradoxical nature of order and chaos. A remote control drawing pen is used to make a large continuous drawing on a 20-metre roll of paper. The remote drawing pen is difficult to control and produces chaotic marks. It relies entirely on the logic of its mechanics and electronics to function.
The drawing will be produced during the exhibition period.

Oscar Ferreiro is interested in what can’t be measured, known or quantified. His work probes the messy and irrational disposition of the ‘body/mind’ and the rational construct of electronic systems. He is currently doing a Master of Fine Art at RMIT.
