Troy David Ouellette
TROY DAVID OUELLETTE is an artist/researcher specializing in Assemblage theory, technology and conceptual art. Over the course of the last twenty-five years his practice has been based around notions of entropy, movement and particulate environments that involve processes of disintegration, integration and reintegration. Using weather as a theme, he discusses complexity and variability. In this sense weather runs parallel to the way culture functions, as something contingent and ever changing. These works on paper represent some of his ideas stemming from the early circuit drawings of Gutai artist Atsuko Tanaka and artist/sociologist John McHale's (transistor diagrams). The circular works reference, global weather patterns and the archive regarding climate.
