RON ROCCO
ARTIST STATEMENT

"During my study of archaeology of technology at M.I.T. the word 'horizon' was often use in reference to a unification of peoples sharing common stylistic traits or employing similar technologies. I have chosen to transform this term for my own use and to imply with it a new unification of peoples operating with interests of a larger human ecological character. My interest is to use the 'horizon' to exemplify the transformation of our relationship with nature.
This house-like icon is the viewer's 'golden temple'. It enshrines the aggregate of concepts each of us bring with us germane to home, community and civilization. On both physical and metaphorical levels the house and its brilliant surface unites the spheres of man and nature. In resolving to navigate themaze of barriers, with the goal of reaching the lit house, the spectator symbolically confronts our labyrinthine impressions of nature, which up until now have isolated us from it."Ron Rocco/September 2001

Ron Rocco's constructions juxtapose man-made structures with imagery from nature. His objects are fabricated from photo-etched circuit boards. They create an enigmatic convergence of traditional forms with new materials.
