In Judaic folk lore a Golem is a protector made from mud and sticks. From Japanese culture a Mech is typically a protector made from advanced robotics. Combining the two we arrive at a modern day protector of everything, constructed not only of nature but technology as well. The physics equations beneath the mud show a glimpse in time, a pause in its construction in which you can view the underlying code that creates both it and all things. 

Additionally, the number nine is steeped deeply in religious and historical beliefs from the Chinese, Jewish, nordic mythologies and more - hence the 9 celestial bodies surrounding Golemecha.

Golemecha is a 7ft tall sculpture made from: plastic, welded metal rods, wire mesh, plaster wrap, 3D printed parts, glue, spray paint, borax, branches, roots, tree kits, LED kits, preserved moss, preserved bonsaI, copper plating, and patina kits.

Note: All the art is not only inspired by, but actually uses pieces of nature. Therefor 15% of any profit made from the sale of the art will be donated to the EDF (environmental defense fund.)

MIM-IC-CRY (n):

 

The ability of some creatures to imitate others, either by sound or appearance, or to merge with their environment for protective purposes.

 

We converse with AI. 
We clone sheep. 
We can replace our bones, 
our ears, eyes and organs 

Meat isn’t just raised.
It’s 3D printed. 
Life isn’t just lived.
It’s rebuilt and rendered. 
Feelings aren’t only experienced, 
but can be prescribed and ingested. 

Daily life has been replicated
into a copy of what nature began. 

And though it’s caused problems. 
It propells our species forward. 

Replication is in our DNA. 
And our ability to mimic the reality around us
will ultimately ensure our survival.

The Prow

By transforming The Prow into an ‘aquarium’ with a synthetic school of fish it becomes a fitting place to showcase this idea. We remind an audience at the heart of one of the largest manmade environments on earth that the world is no longer just nature itself, it is shared by the nature of man as well.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

Garret Kane is an assemblage sculpture artist based in Brooklyn NY.
See his "Mimicri" installation now at the FlatIron Prow Art Space in New York City. 

From the concept to the materials and techniques used, 
almost all his sculptures embody the idea that human beings were made by nature
and through technology we attempt to recreate nature in our own image.
