The Gleaners


A new sculpture called "The Gleaners" is on display at Rose Contemporary in Portland, Maine. The show opens Friday, July 1 and will be on view through the end of August.
This work is funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, and I had lots of help from Ernest Paterno at Cyroni Glass, Marcus Van Oosterum at Neo Velox, Ralph Ruel, and the departments of Computer Science and Information Technology at Southern Maine Community College in the material sourcing and creation of this work, which is made of found electronics, glass, and steel, and features light and sound elements. You can see a video and more images here.
