Description

BFG is a brand of fan. Its also a great book by Raul Dahl.... you know it.... Big Friendly Giant!. This piece is built on wood, into a pocket made on the Shop Bot, CNC router. This piece is a collection of green and black parts arranged in a vertical pattern. The composition combines contrasts in color and shape. Vivid black/white, curved/straight, cutouts/protrusions. The parts interact with the lines in the patterns behind them, The frame is covered in a pattern of the movements of a gear - from the 19th century German patent diagrams I use often in my work. Here it is reversed to white on black.It is a small piece that works well in a stand on a shelf or mantle. It has a wire on the back to be hung as well.Melissa's work reflects the rapid pace which technology becomes obsolete and the resulting glut of old computers. She is concerned that many people don’t know what to do with their old technology and feels manufacturers must begin to take responsibility for the disposal of their products. Growing up, her father worked at Raytheon (1960 –90) and brought home outdated equipment that was being thrown out. Nevertheless she never opened a computer until joining The Artisan’s Asylum, maker space in Somerville, MA where she has had a studio since 2013. She is the recipient of surplus parts, cruft, e-waste from the other members.The older the computer/tech the bigger and better the parts are. There is a limited supply of the most beautiful parts. She is documenting a period of technological development that quickly becomes history. She finds beauty in the abstract shapes and colors of the wide variety of components. Her work has been described as, “Structural Poetry”.- My work is hand made of recycled materials. Wear, tear, dents and scratches are inherent in the process.- Pictures just do not convey the real presence of this piece. - one of a kind- signed and dated- FREE SHIPPING in continental US Please convo for shipping outside continental USIf you like it, let me know!

She is inspired by the variety of shapes, colors, materials, textures and patterns of the components in outdated technology and combines them with appropriated imagery in three dimensional collage she calls Hacker Creations.
