Flint Weisser
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Sunset Park

Genre:Science;


ARTIST STATEMENT: My latest works have been exploring our relationship to technology and science. I am interested in expanding the definition of artistic material by appropriating scientific principles, and the fundamental forces of special relativity as raw materials. I want to use physical science, and the science experiment as a kind of aesthetic experience.

To facilitate this, I have been creating devices which illustrate or make use of the first fundamental force of physics, electromagnetism. The machines and drawings are based from old patent diagrams, etchings from historical scientific treatises, and grade school science experiments.
