Kinetics: Made in Japan (2006)
Jeremy Isao Speier makes kinetic works using motors, neons, ready-mades, photos, wood, and various materials. During this residency he will develop a new series of works involving hand-made electronic circuits. The title of the project comes from a previous work that used a Copal motor with text that read “Made in Japan.” For this new series, the artist will in turn manufacture objects using obsolete and self-made technological forms. He will use fragmented narratives and images within each piece to create a body of work that is tied together by concept and visual models.
