Pseudo Science Fiction
new works by
Mike Libby
July 1 -30, 2005

Technology in the hands of artists have always given them tools for expression of ideas. Most times the technology is transparent as the artist merely uses material for other subject matter, but in some cases it is the technology itself that is the subject matter of the artist. Libby's well known works with insects, where he has added mechanical watch gears and springs and electronic components, underscores the juncture of nature and technology. His new works use technological and scientific concepts as a springboard for his imaginings as he remediates and re-evolves readymade and natural objects into sculptural work. The resulting work is wondrous, fascinating and healthy brain food. for more on Mike Libby and his insect assemblages visit:
