Images from the ALCHEMY show currently at the Des Moines Art Center including all new work from the FIELD STATION experiments including the Alchemist's Gate, a suspended 18th century door from the Himalayan Swat region - modified with surveillance camera and real time feed, salvaged biologic synthesizer, custom electronics, mid-evil European key, silicon wafer, climbing rope, turnbuckles, golf ball, custom digital countdown clock (loops every 31 years), video feed of the Golden Arm in turbulence tests @ NASA Ames Fluid Mechanics Laboratory. EMO: aerospace grade aluminum tape, plywood, climbing rope, salvaged industrial Emergency Off button and modified shipping cases. The Sputterer, re-purposed with salvaged scientific lenses, custom video capture player, gold electro-plated beer can, vintage deep sea camera, fiber optic cables, custom digital countdown clock, horseshoe crab. Sputterers are used in the semiconductor industry to deposit thin films of various metals in integrated circuit processing, typically a gold/palladium (Au/Pd) alloy. Humans may also be referred to at times as sputterers. New light table includes the Golden Arm: a high resolution 3D scan / print of the artist’s arm, gold leafed, housed in a pyrex cone from SETI’s Allen Telescope Array. The cone is designed to encase the radio telescope’s antenna in helium at temperatures near absolute zero. The sculpture itself was influenced by the myth of Hungary’s King St. Stephen, whose miracle producing hand has been preserved in a reliquary in Budapest since 1038 A.D. The Robotic Arm: a 4 stringed instrument, was built from a robotic hand salvaged in Cupertino, California, 3D mis-printed forearm of the artist @150% life size, laser optics, pink sex toy, inverter, syringe, electric guitar strings, tensioners, clamps, digital countdown clock. The Wing: employs seven modified retroflectors and laser optics components. The ongoing Lunar Laser Ranging Experiment measures the distance between Earth and the Moon using lasers aimed at retroreflectors planted on the Moon during the Apollo and Lunokhod missions.
