Diverted Pump


Matt Moyer

About the Work: 

Diverted Pump explores society’s relationship to innovation through an investigation into a relationship with factories, manufacturing, and the machines and people who create those goods and services. These ideas tie directly into Dubuque’s diverse history of manufacturing. Embedded with a rich surface of paint and patina, Diverted Pump invests in the importance of the passage of time, how people and things give and take from history while serving as a record of the days, months and years that have passed. The engagement with the notion of illumination is explored through the shadows that are created from the piece and how they relate to the environment where the sculpture is installed.
