"2099 A.D."



Description: 2099 A.D. is a commentary on the state of our ever growing digital world and our dependency on it. It features a hand carved pine skull biting four laptop keys that spell out "Escape the Control". Not only are the keys from the laptop that was used in the recording process of all three Ploy of Oracle (Bardasian's band) Records, but the Intel Chip from the same laptop is placed within the skull. The skull is attached to a number of circuit boards that came from a Baldwin EP-101 Electric Piano. To further emphasize the constant connectivity to the digital world, wires coming out of the skull have been soldered to the circuit boards as well. The frame, that was taken from a broken mirror, has been heavily distressed and textured.

"Self Portrait"


Description: The "Self Portrait" is a piece made from multiple instrument parts and materials; each specifically chosen and intended to metaphorically symbolize and interpret a different aspect of the artists introspection, sense of humor, and albeit altered, sense of self. Materials that make up the piece include: A hand carved pine skull cut away showing a web like group of woven piano strings to simulate the brain, teeth made from piano tuning pins, one of the artist's, ever present, camel lights, clavicle's made from piano action brackets, atop scapula's made from cast iron piano sound board. The vertebrae is a fender telecaster fretboard with piano back check's attached to the side and piano hammers attached the top acting as the rib cage. Behind the ribcage a mirror has been attached to add the value reflecting not only the pieces parts, but the viewers very image themselves. The heart is handmade from copper sheet metal and red and blue vinyl coated copper is braided to simulate blood vessels woven in a wired time bomb like pattern. The Humerus, carpals, and femur bones are hand carved pine, and the radius bones are drum sticks and the phalanges are made from piano damper levers. The pelvic girdle was made from a a fender acoustic body. Behind it is a sheet of gold coated metal that shrouds two industrial strength magnets. Sticking to the magnets are old screws of various shapes and sizes. The assemblage is mounted atop a faux-finish made up of vinyl spackle, and acrylic paint. The framing is an antique gold faux-finish using metallic gold paint, and oil, on prefab pine trim boards.
