Turned On Artificial Intelligence
Show Opening Friday, October 12
By reimagining the life of an object, local artists Jim Turner creates functional assemblage art for people who see beauty in the things that have otherwise been neglected or outlived their "usefulness" in our society, giving them a lasting purpose.
Just a small representation of his vast breath of work, the re/assembled robot touch lamps seen in this show start as discarded electronic and automotive parts and tools: battery chargers, voltmeters, altimeters, wrenches, pistons, brakes, engines before becoming usable household objects. Not for the faint of heart, the robots are instantly identifiable as male, female, or in-between. They will light up your life with their impressive bulbs. #deviantart
