ALEX LOCKWOOD: PLASTIC MAN, GARBAGE DEVILS AND THE SPARK OF LIFE ON JUNKMOON1
Gallery 121 (Belmont University) / 1900 Belmont Blvd November 5, 2018 - December 5, 2018
Many years ago, on ClearWater 13, aka JunkMoon1, an unknown spark transformed a cluster of polymers into a conscious, mobile mass. Over time this tiny form evolved into what we now know as Plastic Man. This exhibition will document the rise of Plastic Man through dioramas, audio recordings and authentic examples of his early musical instruments, weaponry and art work. Plastic Man is, of course, inseparable from life in the galaxy. Here, for the first time on Earth, we present the fragile and unlikely origin of this fascinating species.
