Description


Todd Siler, trained in both science and the visual arts, will exhibit models and drawings derived from his studies and speculations on nuclear fusion reactor design. Delving into an area that science and technology so far have been unable to fully solve, Siler, in his new body of work, responds to one of the most monumental scientific challenges of the day: how to recreate the power of the sun on earth in order to provide a safe, readily available, environmentally friendly energy source, that is essentially inexhaustible. With the obsession of the search for the Holy Grail, Siler has pursued the premise that a thermonuclear fusion energy system might become increasingly more effective to the degree that this system more closely embodies the geometry and physics of a star, which is nature’s “fractal reactor.”
