"In contemporary life, where so much of what we see has been embellished or has a level of artifice, the honesty and integrity the x-ray reveals has a simple, pure elegance. In a nutshell, the work is a statement against society’s obsession with superficiality.” ~ Nick Veasey
RAYGUNS by Tinkerbot
"A self proclaimed "junkaholic" and all around geek enthusiast, Dan Jones (a.k.a. Tinkerbots) is one of San Diego’s premier found object and assemblage sculptors. A native San Diegan, Dan has been a tinkerer for as long as he can remember..
From his backyard lab and studio, Dan takes great joy in creating whimsical robots, ray guns and steampunk themed sculptures out of what most people would consider “junk”. Some of Dan’s many interests include collecting vintage radio broadcasts, exploring the Steampunk and Dieselpunk aesthetic and going on treasure hunts for those esoteric gems of mehanical castoffs (a.k.a. junk)! Dan’s work has appeared in several publications including cover images and has been displayed at San Diego’s Device Gallery, Oceanside Museum of Art, the San Diego Automotive Museum and San Diego Comic Con’s Art Show.”
