Critical Review

The Action Of The World Upon Things is a series that is directly influenced by Hirst’s famous Spin Paintings that originated in 1993. These early works were created with a rotating machine, onto which a canvas was attached, and the artist poured household gloss paint onto. This 2002 series was produced with copper plates attached to the same spin machine with the spiral lines drawn with needles, screwdrivers, and other sharp tools as they spun

Notable to this series of prints is that Hirst writes on the plates, inscribing them with titles, dates and his signature. The writing appears child-like and misshapen due to the fact that Hirst inscribed the letters onto the copperplate backwards, so that when printed they can be read from left to right. Many of the titles in the series, including Revolution, make reference to rotation or circular shapes in various forms.
