Lex Talkington explores the use of found objects combined with modern technology, woodworking, and metalworking to create static, kinetic, and interactive sculpture. Gravitating towards engineered, mechanical found objects, Lex’s work blends the dichotomy of old and new into highly crafted, sometimes surreal, objects. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and additional years of software design and engineering experience, Lex applies these skills in inventive ways to create experiential artwork. Lex’s art aims to perpetuate curiosity. Fascinated by the construction of machines and electronics, both how they are made and how different parts can work together as a single system (similar to living organisms) — his work grows from that innate curiosity to deconstruct the constructed and re-purpose the parts into completely new experiences. The shapes, mechanics, patina, and textures of the past evolve from the objects they once were into new complete systems, organisms, and experiences.
