Medicine for a Nightmare

2022

About the Item

'Medicine for a Nightmare', a sculpture by artist Richard Slee. Richard Slee’s sculptural work grew from his “love of the Afrofuturist Music of Sun Ra and his ‘Cosmic Philosophy’, resulting from his claimed alien abduction to Saturn. Sun Ra’s Cosmic Philosophy may have been an act of personal mythology, or the result of an artistic creation. But as a consequence, he created some strangely beautiful music from beyond binding myths, the cosmos and all kinds of possible realities.” Richard continues, “Having experienced the unnerving world of sleep paralysis, I have sought to formulate and develop my own interpretation of what ‘otherworldliness’ might be. I work with modular forms, by stretching and transforming material properties and attempt to make a unique building block for this faux universe. Many individual elements combine to create numerous building blocks, which are then tessellated to create a series of planetary forms” in his sculptures.

    By Terry Poulos
    Located in Chicago, IL
    Modern-day 3-dimensional facsimile of the 1-dimensional mathematical axis spiral found in the ancient manuscript titled the "Archimedes Palimpsest." Sculpture conveys a double entendre with its proprietary version of the universe spiraling through space, evoking Archimedes’ effort to calculate the volume of the universe. The universe is depicted via the vortex spiral and globe as supercooled and superheated, a polar opposite electrical balance of nature. An armillary sphere conveys Archimedes' math treatises on the circle, sphere and cylinder. Included are one vintage pulley and corkscrew (representing the water screw), both honoring Archimedes inventions, and one valve handle. SPECS: Spot-welded seven-foot long vintage iron chain, vintage armillary sphere...
