Upward Mobility

This piece was a private commission, based on the theme of a “Space Ark”.  Initially the idea was that the ship would be filled with specimens. Gradually it evolved into the idea that it was a life-boat for the American Middle Class. Blasting a slice of mediocrity into space may be the last hope of preserving that way of life. 

Materials:

Aircraft wing tips, aircraft hardware, bandsaw cover, ice cream dishes, acrylic dome, engine intake, crystal, model train scenery, machined aluminum, motors, LEDs
