To fully understand Tristan Shone’s artwork, you need to read the explainer that accompanies a piece he created for the group show SouthwestNET: Techno at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. “Aphanisis” consists of a precision drill press, built by Shone, with a syringe in place of the drill bit—a sort of sci-fi automated drug-implanting device—enclosed in a glass box.
The Drone Machines are now on display together with videos by Gretchen Mercedes until September 17th, 2009 at Compact Space Gallery in Los Angeles, CA.
