Metal can be molded, and pieces of this material can be bent and joined together. It is strong enough to support often unusual shapes that extend into space. Fertig’s assemblages are composed from parts found in the computer and aerospace industry. Cut and assembled, his constructions become machine-like fancies of flight.
