One of David Nelson's main interests is the idea of agency — for something to come into being by letting other forces be the agent doing it. Nelson's goal is to create his artwork indirectly and to allow other forces to have their way. He tightly controls something which he has no control over. Or, he is taking a precise system and letting chance or disruption occur. Nelson makes art that makes itself.
