Me Welding Dunkbot – Photo by Karen Bean
In 2008 I had an opportunity to help Mark Westneat Ph.D with a Biomechanical model of a Dunkelosteous, a prehistoric fish, to test its bite strength. The model was filmed for an episode of History Channel’s series “Evolve”. We had a three minute segment in the “Jaws and Claws” episode. We smashed all kinds of stuff in the jaws, and had a generally good time. The model is currently on display with the Field Museum’s new show, “Biomechanics The Machine Within.” There’s even a second Dunkbot traveling Europe!
“Transitional Figure Study 2” I worked on for a Show with Anderson Arts Center. Originally I hoped to incorporate some yard fired ceramic pieces, but It didn’t work out.
These Figure Studies are from the RAC Show I did with Gary and Doug a couple of years back. Doug Nicholson is currently displaying them In Envi Ultralounge, Main St. in Racine.
