W. David Powell
Visual Poet and Amateur Philosopher

My ongoing body of work investigates the intersection of various scientific disciplines with the representation of humankind. I look at the physicality of the body and mind, as well as manifestations of the ineffable and mysterious. Energy, in the body, in the earth as well as in the air, is also made visible through charts and diagrams in much of my work. The works often show anthropomorphic machines as energy generators or mechanized stand-ins for humanity. Though their authoritative and didactic format is often that of classic textbook illustrations, my works make no pretense of being explications of rational theories of mind and body or energy conservation and distribution. They are simply visual meditations that bring sometimes debased and debunked theories of both modern and archaic science into conjunction with various other images of our mortal existence to encourage a new look at our assumptions about science and a materialist representation of reality.
