Transitor Hive (by Brian Lilla)
Transistor Hive, 2011, 2ft x 4ft x 12ft
The delicate activity of hive insects power a simple clock that marks the passage of time. Decay is present in the dusting of flour. The bureau dissolves and becomes unrecognizable as time and life spin forward.
Materials: salvaged bedroom dresser, motor, pulleys, transistor tubes and mechanical equipment.
Evan Holm’s work is sublime. Check out his Crystal Turntables too.
