Mars Transmitter, beta - A conceptual, futuristic steel totem pole containing a sphere filled with our transmittable human consciousness, and intended as a beacon of human identity on Mars.
Mars Transmitter, beta is inspired by lofty goals to colonize Mars and expand human consciousness beyond planet Earth. The transmitter has been built into a steel column that strives to modernize the the physical expression of the Totem Pole used by Native Peoples to connote their local tribal identity. Mars Transmitter hopes to be a catalyst of personal human insight: what ideas represent our human identity? Can our species’ consciousness be transmitted? And, if so, what human thoughts and ideas are worthy of sharing beyond Earth?
2015- These images are of a sculptural work in progress, created as a dynamic wedding gift. The light sculpture was put in a plain wood box. The box was written on by the guests at the wedding, and the bride and groom then set the box on top of a bonfire in order to "open" the gift. What resulted was one of the riskiest and most unique heat-applied patina's I've ever made. soon to be a freestanding light sculpture on a steel base, for their new home in NY.

Mining For Light
2014 - This mixed media sculpture of tar, rubber, moss, acrylic and mirror was created especially for the brilliantly conceived Consenses multimedia art exhibition. Producer and Curator Sally Taylor asked artists to draw inspiration of their works based on an anonymous work given to them by another artist, which was in turn translated in to another creative medium by another artist. The chains of creative interpretation were begun from a secret source and passed on without knowing the other artists.
Unbeknownst to us, each chain of artwork started with a photograph of a special place on the island of Martha's Vineyard. This first interpretation of that image started a secret exchange that created a chain of creative expression which included: photography, music composition, scents, dance, sculpture, painting, video works, even custom made teas. As a vast expression of the senses, Consenses explored the myriad creative ways to interpret an idea, that involved artists from around the world.
Mining for Light was created after I was given an anonymous video of a woman's modern dance choreography - with no sound. Like each artist involved, I was told to create an interpretation within one to two weeks. The expression of my sculptural form is a micro illustration of a macro concept: within ourselves and every stratum of our Earth, there contains a dynamic life force that sustains us - if we, in turn, sustain it.
At the end of the creative chain, when it was fulfilled by different artists in different mediums, it was revealed to us that the source image of this art work was a great old oak tree.
Sold to t Private collector in Boston at the Consenses Art Auction on Martha's Vineyard in September 2016
2014 - A personal project borne out of a need to express my view of the creation of system circuitry that will lead to AI (Artificial Intelligence).

The metal elements of this wall hanging work are actually parts of the much larger Future's Past sculpture.
