The Museum of Curious Thought / Vintage Science Wing
I believe in solids, I believe in liquids, but I’m not sure about vapor, that simply has to be accepted because it will vanish.
Vaporization is the transition from solid or liquid to a gaseous state. These vintage scientific machines explore evaporation, which is the process of turning liquid into gas, and sublimation, in which a solid turns into a gas with no liquid required.
The Museum of Curious Thought is an installation of mixed media assemblage sculpture, using recycled materials to create pseudo-scientific museum scenarios. For over 10 years I have been working on this concept through exhibitions at Gallery Route One. Each installation investigates science and technology — and they might effect our everyday lives. My focus has been on the various Scientific Wings, which included optical allusions, magnification, plant phenomena, and now vaporization.
