Spaceship In A Bottle by Greg Treseder

Artwork Showcase - Greg Treseder

I'm a Folsom-based Maker and Artist. I create interactive, functional art using a variety of electronics, lighting, motion, and sound. I use a variety of materials and use 3D printing, laser cutting, metal work, and electronics for my creations.

My most recent work - a Spaceship In A Bottle - the spaceship in this bottle is crafted of metal, acrylic, rubber, and electronics. It features a solitary astronaut, viewing a vintage CRT (cathode-ray-tube) display that cycles through several different space-themed videos. The astronaut is on a hopeful journey home, but the ship is running low on supplies, and the engines at the rear flicker like a candle as the craft's fuel dwindles.

I teach a course at the Curious Forge in Grass Valley titled "Electronics for Artists", and teach Mechatronics at Sierra College.

Visit my website for more information about my work and courses: Fabforgefive.com
