Kenneth Baskin’s inspired mechanical objects are artifacts, derived from the advent of the industrial revolution. The works may look like metal, but are almost entirely ceramic. Baskin says our industrial roots are a starting point for explorations of form and motion in the Technological Age. He’s on exhibition in Lake Charles, Louisiana, through September.
