. Parkinson’s Law,
Rowan Mersh is a textile based sculptor who explores form and fuses concept with technique, emphasizing experimentation as the focus of his practice.
Parkinson’s Law, 2010. Fabric Sculpture commissioned by George Frack for the opening of Great Western Studios. Derived from Parkinson’s Law (‘work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion’), and created utilization a self-developed technique ‘the innate spiral’, from which it is possible to generate an organically spiraling, three dimensional structure from a tube of stretch jersey and encompassed object. Currently measuring 8 meters in length and up to 2.5 meters in width, Parkinson’s Law is set to grow in size each time it is exhibited. Constructed from rubber balls and knitted stretch jersey.(© Rowan Mersh website)
