Back in October Meredith visited briefly with Aaron Ristau at Maker Faire Austin. Aaron is a sculptor who works primarily with found bits of technological detritus, from his website:
Technology surrounds us. Products are obsolete within an ever decreasing amount of time, putting an increasing strain on our ability to deal with man made waste. Man’s recyclable and manufactured surplus as a sculptors medium lends itself to an infinite variety of possibilities, which creates a whole new genre for sculptors’. By intricately integrating and redefining the purpose of reclaimed components, the completion of a sculpture is a triumph over obsolescence and the reward of creative vision.
Aaron has recently finished a series of pieces that are very much in the Steampunk style and to our great delight has sent them to us for their unveiling! There are a several more pics after the cut and an amazing amount of beautiful work at Aaron’s website, my particular favourite are the series of lamps and lit sculptures!
