Machining in the Digital Age: Bricoleur Urbane

Machining in the Digital Age: Bricoleur Urbane

Machining in the Digital Age: Bricoleur Urbane, Todd A Davis, 2001. Monograph.
 
With the work of Paméla Landry, Konrad Kordoski, and Val Valgardson, we can see the mockery and wit of Dadaism, the aesthetic of prewar Modernism, and the utilization of late twentieth-century technology combined to create an empathy, form, and space in these sculptural pieces. Machined, hand built, infused with the ironic, the humorous, and the fantastical, these works reflect several centuries of industrialization development; kinetic, interactive, and contributing images of society's history, its present and future considerations, these sculptures accomplish tasks simply, surmising their physical capabilities, but posing questions: challenges as to why this image, why that object, why that reference?
