Dreaming in Science Fiction

from essay by Ryan Doherty (Director/Curator of Southern Alberta Art Gallery):

“With colorful probes attached to his head, Fredrickson monitors his movements while sleeping after having watched one of a selection of sci-fi movies released in the year of his birth, 1977. Each movement is captured through a software program that digitally manipulates the form of a virtual pillow and then translates the virtual form into a physical sculpture using plastic lumber and a CNC router. The final pieces are elegant white objects loaded with pseudoscientific and pataphysical absurdity (yet stringently adhering to a logical machine-assisted process) countered with an arbitrary if highly personal subjectivity.”
