Wield 20 by JesseMeyer Wield 20 by JesseMeyer
This piece is inspired by "man" and our interaction with the technology we create. The wheel form represents technology while the figure within the wheel represents human kind. Together they symbolize the product of this relationship. The man is armored in and propelling himself by means of technology, however, how we use or "Wield" this power, is a treacherous balancing act. Together man and technology can be an advantageous relationship in pursuit of our future, yet failure to control our means of growth responsibly can lead to an accident of our own demise.

Absolutely incredible! The anatomical details on the human figure is fantastic and sleek, and the giant wheel makes the entire piece very dynamic and atmospheric. I'm also intrigued by how your work raises the question which is ultimately influencing which between humanity and technology - is the man working the wheel or the wheel putting man into motion. Truly splendid.

This photo viewpoint reminds me of a game called "Warframe".

 

Very well done and I love all the symbolism.

The wheel he runs in is 5 feet in diameter if that helps.
