Fishbug / Chimera Sententia (2009) is a steel-based structure commissioned by Black Rock City, LLC, for the 2009 Burning Man festival that describes a living creature at pause while it considers radical visions its mind can barely accommodate. Its extremities are exposed sculpted steel, and its thorax and head are covered in a flexible skin. Conical eyes protrude from its face while its glowing cranium, sculpted in translucent fiberglass, allows internal projections to play across its surface. The subtle pulse of flame, light, and kinetic effects impart a steady intent to live, to think, to thrive and invite participants to move through, over, and into this strange but welcoming creature.
