In no. 5: Binary Change by Nathan Hatch
Wisconsin based artist, Nathan Hatch, creates abstract sculpture in a variety of media for indoor and outdoor display. Deriving inspiration from a wide variety of sources, Hatch crafts objects that straddle the line between organic and mechanical, recognizable and unfamiliar, contemporary and ancient. In this installation entitled Binary Change, Hatch combines two bodies of work— Binary Cogs and Sea Change— which juxtapose imagery from industrial fabrications with artisan production styles to explore the boundaries and intersections of manufacturing and fine art.
