I intend to spent 24 hours as the conductor and subject of a pseudo-scientific experiment into entropy and the Arrow of Time, exploring the laws of thermodynamics by using my artistic practice as a metaphorical scientific specimen. Simultaneously I will be the scientist, making measurements and recording results, and the group of atoms interacting with other parts of the system.

Islington Mill, and my studio within it, will act as the closed system under study. The limited time frame will be an experimental condition. Loosely equating creativity with heat, I will start from a temperature of absolute zero: a blank scientific sketchbook, an empty workspace and no preconceived ideas for making work.

This blog is a document of the process.
