As the handle is turned, the gears engage to hypnotically flip, spin and rotate the heart. “She makes my heart spin, she always has.”
Martin’s research and work are concerned with people’s perception and interpretation of space. He undertakes quite large architectural commissions that interact with their given space and the viewer through movement.
Alongside this work his practice is also concerned with making kinetic architectural maquettes that slowly investigate themes of repetition, precision and rules.
These utopian objects and spaces that are seemingly impossible to implement are what currently drive his work forward.
