Steve Brudniak Artist Talk and Documentary Screening

These sculptures appear to be machines or ritual objects operating in some bizarre institution but are in fact, assemblages of found objects imbued with science elements including: samples of the oldest life ever discovered, lenses which reflect 3-dimensional images, inorganic "specimens" in fluid and fiber optic projections. Most take months to finish, some as long as a year. This new body of work reflects upon the principal/condition Noumenon; the emptiness from which all things emerge.

The show will also include Brudniak's, Astrogeneris Mementos which were launched into outer space and exhibited on the International Space Station for the first ever art show in outer space.
