"Well, time goes by" : obsolescence in Vollis Simpson's whirligigs by Laura Bickford( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Vollis Simpson's environment of twenty-nine monumental whirligigs, built on his former farm in Lucama, North Carolina over the course of fifteen years, provide a tangible snapshot of the object landscape that populated this region of the country during his lifetime. Comprised of salvaged materials, collected by Simpson over decades, the transformer-like kinetic sculptures constantly oscillate between being monuments to the past, markers of the present, and suggestions of what is to come. Obviously formed with some aesthetic intentions in mind but more closely aligned with machines, a fixed description of them seems almost impossible, and one that would necessarily come at the expense of a more nuanced analysis of the whirligigs. Frozen in motion, the pieces of the whirligigs and the whirligigs themselves are confounding in their state of permanent transition. By providing a material read of the whirligigs, this thesis seeks to follow their modularity and kineticism and suggest that the problem lies in our very understanding of categories of division that come up when querying this subject, such as trash, waste, insider, outsider, useful, obsolete, artist, laborer, object, and subject
