Lark Descending

Human presence triggers a motion sensor which starts the song of the Skylark and the physical decent of the iron replica suspended, mid air, by a magnet until the song fades giving way to the rev of a tractor.

The graph on the rusty back board shows the decline in Skylark numbers in the UK since 1967.

Wild life is in drastic decline and heading toward extinction. In the case of the Skylark it is down to habitat loss due to more intensive farming practises in the UK.

Richard Paton

Invisible forces: they push us, they pull us, some we know about, most go unnoticed. As we make our best attempts to steer a steady course through life we are frequently buffeted by forces beyond our control. Time goes forwards, backwards, sometimes it stops still, perhaps it doesn’t even exist, light sheds light when we aren’t in the dark. Cosmic radiation streams through the empty space of our bodies, the earth’s magnetic field does it’s best to defend us from the sun’s blast. Incremental gaseous imbalances threaten the future of our ephemeral consciousness. The imperceptible spin of the earth hangs onto itself by gravity, it will exist long after our brief glimpse of it. As pressure from above makes the wind blow to the edges of a compass, I do my best to navigate the flux. I breath, I think, I make.

the ocean begins under your feet. 2021 - Venedig
Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy 2020/21 – TIME SPACE EXISTENCE European Cultural Centre, (ECC) Venice, Italy / this project is sponsored by the Ministerium für Bildung, Wissenschaft und Kultur in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany + Palmyra Sculpture Centre, Amsterdam, Netherlands + Aláro, Islas Baleares, Spain Palazzo Mora, Venice, Exhibition from May 22nd – Novembre 21st.202 TIME SPACE EXISTENCE https://ecc-italy.eu/files/2021%20Cat%20Arch%2050mb.pdf the projects trailer/ film by Gudrun Brigitta Nöh 2021 https://vimeo.com/533590454 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2g_megKJQo The theme of the Architecture Biennale: How do we want to live? The theme of the European Cultural Centre: TIME SPACE EXISTENCE. Quite quickly it became clear to me that I was devoting my attention to water, more precisely to the oceans. The reason is simple: we humans are also water beings. Accordingly, my project reflects the current situation of climate change. It is a call for more mindfulness and respect towards nature, especially water, the life-sustaining and life-giving element. Climate change does not differentiate people by skin color, religion or ethnicity, rich or poor. Climate change forces humanity to work together and requires contributions from everyone to make life in this world more livable. That’s what my project is all about: “the ocean starts under your feet”, pay attention to where and how you go.

What shall we eat tonight?
People concern the natural catastrophe, when they see them on a television. However, their concern will be declined as the news ends and then it will be replaced with their daily life. “OK, now switch off the television, everyone! Time for a dinner! What shall we eat tonight?” “hmm..What shall I wear for the party tomorrow?” People feel our planet became warmer. However climate change progress little by little and people has an ability to adopt them into new temperature. But when they aware of the impact not on television but in front of them, it will be too late and adopting into new temperature is not endless. It is not necessary to threat people every day by showing problems, but it is also meaningful time to time to bring the issues to concern.

Piedras
COMO TÚ (de León Felipe) Así es mi vida, piedra, como tú. Como tú, piedra pequeña, como tú piedra ligera; como tú, canto que ruedas por las calzadas y por las veredas; como tú, guijarro humilde de las carreteras; como tú, que en días de tormenta te hundes en el cieno de la tierra y luego centelleas bajo los cascos y bajo las ruedas; como tú, que no has servido para ser ni piedra, ni de una lonja, ni piedra de una audiencia, ni piedra de un palacio, ni piedra de una iglesia; como tú, piedra aventurera; como tú, que tal vez estás hecha solo para una honda, piedra pequeña y ligera…… Todas estas piedras están dedicadas a los fracasados, desahuciados, perdedores, derrotados,…. quizás yo mismo. Cuando salimos al campo solo las miramos para no tropezarnos o evitar un traspiés. Ahí se quedan, tiradas en el camino. Sólo son estorbos. Angel.

Summer
The "Summer" is a circular composition, with sculptural figures of a walking man and woman at the bottom and upper points of the inner and outer circles of its infinite outline. The sculpture is about the eternal story of a relationship - the decisive step of both, which must unite, or finally divide them...

Barricas
La vida de los seres humanos está jalonada de sucesos que van dejando cicatrices en las personas. Unas veces se curan rápidamente y otras supuran durante mucho tiempo hasta que llega un tiempo en que desaparecen. La serie Barricas se produce en un contexto muy determinado en el segundo semestre de 2012. Hay dos elementos que coinciden en el tiempo y que van a se decisivos en que esos trabajos salgan adelante. Por un lado me habían ofrecido un par de barricas unos meses atrás, de esas que quitan las bodegas cada cierto tiempo, pues dicen que ya no aportan cualidades al vino. Con una hice dos maceteros, y me dio pena deshacer la segunda sin tener pensado nada., por lo que se quedó a la espera en un rincón. Y por otro se produjo un largo ingreso hospitalario de mi padre que nos obligó a los familiares más cercanos a permanecer muchas horas a pié de cama. Todos tuvimos que organizarnos para prestarle los cuidados que precisaba. En mi caso pude compaginar el trabajo, los cuidados y casi todos los días disponía de unas dos o tres horas, para mí necesarias, en las que trabajaba en el taller. Pues nada, coincidieron esas dos situaciones y un día deshice el tonel y me planteé hacer un cuadro. La verdad es que no tenía yo la cabeza para trabajar la creatividad y la imaginación. Hice algo simple y me gustó la sensación, sobre todo por que me relajaba y me generaba una serenidad interior que no disponía. Como enseguida gasté las duelas, localicé una bodega cercana y fui comprando barricas en la medida que se agotaban. Estos trabajos corresponden a una época convulsa de la vida, y las distintas formas y colores responden al estado de ánimo de cada momento. Son de líneas simples como corresponde al material con el que se trabaja y con los dibujos coloreados para que puedan diferenciarse. Al final está todo encerado. No tenían otro objetivo que el que fuesen agradables a la vista.

Dead Reckoning
A reference to an historical navigation method. Starting from a place of certainty by calculating a previously determined position and then advancing that position with the use of instruments and analysis. The process of dead reckoning allows the navigator to know where they are in a featureless ocean. However, sometimes ships are knocked off course by un-foreseen natural events and are lost.

Brain Melt (the wave function collapse)
According to quantum physics a particle exists as a wave throughout the universe but when it is observed and enters our consciousness it becomes a measurable particle, with the aid of scientific instruments, this is known as ‘wave function collapse’. A wave is converted by our mind from a probability to something with structure and locality. Therefore consciousness plays a fundamental part in the structure of the universe, it implies that the universe can only exist, or come into being, if it is observed. This kinetic sculpture is less an illustration but more a meditation on the fact. To see it working goto: http://richardpaton.com/wave-function-collapse/

Marilyn Monroe als Bienenstock
Figurenbeute der Diva, der 'hottest bee ever' aus der Szene in 'Manche mögen heiß'. Bei den Skulpturen für Bienen sind traditionell die Fluglöcher unterhalb des Bauchnabels. Diese Bienenhäuser folgen dem fruchtbarkeitszauber vergangener Zeiten und machen auf charmant erotische Art darauf aufmerksam, daß die Bienen Fruchtbarkeit bringen. Beleben, was uns am Herzen liegt. Beleben was wiederentdeckt werden muß, das dürfen Figurenbeuten aus meiner Werkstatt.

FG 4
Edition von 15Stk FG ist die Abkürzung der Blume „Froschgoscherl“ (Löwenmaul). Die ersten Skulpturen wurden von ihren erotischen Farben und Formen inspiriert. Sperrholz-, Kunststoff- oder Metallstreifen werden unter Spannung miteinander verbunden (geleimt oder geschraubt), wodurch sie wodurch sie sich zu Kurven verformen. Löst man einen von dem anderen, verändert sich die Gesamtform. Die Objekte verformen sich durch ihr Eigengewicht und je nach dem wie herum man sie hängt. Die Objekte haben kein Oben und kein Unten und können beliebig herum gehängt werden, wodurch der Eindruck entsteht, als hinge immer wieder ein neues Objekt (Gesamtform) an der Wand, obwohl die Struktur immer die gleiche ist. Licht und Schatten spielen ebenfalls eine Hauptrolle, da enge Zwischenräume dunkle und weite Zwischenräume helle Flächen entstehen lassen. Farben unterstreichen die Formen und verstärken ihren Ausdruck. ________________________________ Edition of 15 pieces. The sculpture is dismountable and can be hanged in different directions. (It is hanged at the wall with a nail of specific length attached in the package) The sculpture is inspired by a flower called snapdragon. It is inspired by the flower´s erotic shape and colors. The visible structure of the wood gives an sensitive impression. The thin and sharp blue line gives structure and orientation. The objects are deformed by their own weight and depending on the direction they are hanged.

Going Cuckoo
this is a working cuckoo clock which chimes on the hour, it is powered electrically with an internal digital clock. Like all creatures of the earth the Common Cuckoo population is in decline due to the use of insecticides and habitat loss. In the period of coronavirus and lockdown brought about by yet another zoonotic disease, ‘Going Cuckoo’ seems to parallel the dystopia, as an imagined nostalgia of life lost.

Once upon a time... I
Once upon a time … proposes an uncertain vision of the future. Between fragments, the image reconstructs memories sewn together, alluding to the sublime experience of facing the wind, the sun, the earth, the leaves, the forest … common experiences that someday will be nothing more than stories.
