July 2004: Marc Berghaus Sculpture

Marc Berghaus uses a variety of materials to create his sculptures.   Ideas become an actual object by realizing the dimensions into wood and metal, and, if light and movement are involved, figuring out and building the necessary electronics and mechanics.  His artwork is th result of prolonged spiritual questioning, not only the nature of how and why things happen in the first place, but also how people perceive these processes and relate to their own beliefs.  He has also recently become  interested in language- its structure, its uses.  These two interests have begun to merge:  sacred languages, and religious practices that feature language.
