A signature of David Ireland’s art is his dumbballs, formed by passing a lump of concrete from hand to hand (over a period of hours) until a sphere sets up and hardens. The artwork required time and repetition, with theory over-taking notions of craft and artist’s decision-making. Chance and physical characteristic become the output of the creative process, where the performance that engages the body as much as the mind. Isn’t this connection (body/mind meld) the true characteristic of what we strive for in architecture?
