Spark

Artist as Inventor

Spark hits the hardware store and the machine shop to visit with artists who double as inventors.

In our first story, meet composer and musician Paul Dresher, who explores the cutting edge of music with instruments he designs and builds.

Then, check out the rocking, rolling, reeling sculptures of sound artist Matt Heckert.

Finally, get a glimpse into the future with artists who dream of whole new worlds to explore -- art into outer space -- at the Workshop on Space Artist's Residencies and Collaborations.
