The work Coriolis relies on the misconception known as ‘coriolis’; the idea that water whilst draining, turns in different directions dependent on whether sited in the southern or northern hemisphere.
Existing in material form as a dubplate recording of water draining in the northern hemisphere, hence anti-clockwise, the turntable, playing the dubplate clockwise, effectively eliminates the recording. Dubplates have very limited durability – they begin to loose the sound quality after 30 or so plays and are completely eliminated after approx 1000. What remains, a token almost of the artwork, is the empty vinyl disc. Equator coinage, maybe.
The work is available for purchase as a limited edition at Campbell Works gallery – www.campbellworks.org.
