Tim Simpson's Natural Deselection machine is powerful on many levels. Not only does the piece give commentary on the way technology can be powerfully dark when dominating nature, but also it's entertaining, it's witty, and it's a beautiful piece as well.
Implications - If applied to any living creature other than a plant, this kind of art might be seen as cruel and unusual, but instead it offers an interesting look both at technology and the role of natural selection in everyday life. Although its concept is fairly simple, this piece of live art has an effect that causes viewers to contemplate its outcome long afterward. This sort of lasting impression is the goal of all art.
