Todd Robinson

Experiments in Natural Philosophy is Australian artist Todd Robinson‘s latest exhibition, having just wrapped up at the Galerie Pompom in Sydney, where large balloon sculptures combine a form of proto-engineering with weird yet wonderful studies in comparative materiality.

This new body of work draws on an ongoing series of balloon inspired sculptures featured in his previous exhibitions, which feature balloons that droop and slump as the force of gravity appears to bear down upon them, presenting Robinson’s inquiry into sculptural presence, materiality and conditions of audience reception.

In conceiving this body of work, Robinson references the history of science and Natural Philosophy, a predecessor of modern science that had yet to dismiss the concept of nature, rendering imaginary forces visible of which we are unaware, yet appear natural to conventional observation.
