About the Work

This steam-punk inspired metal sculpture incorporates Dunning's mask motif in lead print typeface and a re-purposed cast iron squeeze jolt molding machine. This machine was used to press sand in a flask around a pattern for molds used by foundries. The powerful 6.5 foot tall indoor sculpture incorporates enigmatic narrative with the aesthetic of 19th century industrial machinery.
