Atticus Adams finds great inspiration in the writings of Henry David Thoreau. This installation is based on the Thoreau quote: “If you have built castles in the air your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.” Atticus Adams is a sculptor whose work embodies the transformative power of art to create beauty, meaning, and emotional impact from industrial materials. Using aluminum, bronze, copper, and stainless steel mesh—generally found in screen doors/windows and filters—inspired by memories, he creates abstract fine art pieces, installations, sets and costumes which sometimes resemble flowers, clouds, and other natural phenomena.
