dc.description.abstractDesiring Machine is a fallen tree/tower lying by the motorway. It is a crashed relic of machine- age desire putting down new roots into the earth and unfurling tendrils from its architectonic radii and sections. The cause of this optical confusion is a vegetal motif, a floral border from a 19th century pattern book that has been adapted to form the base unit of this sculpture. It is composed of three repeated modular units generated from the ‘original’ pattern. Desiring Machine’s recursive plant-like structure unfolds from a single stem five units long that branches into four stems, three units long which in turn branches into nine stems, two units long and finally branches into sixteen stems, each one unit longen
