I almost didn’t write this column. Sharing my opinions is fine. Sharing my personal experiences much more difficult.
For a long time, since the separation, I have suffered panic attacks. The attacks are often triggered by sounds. At their worst, they lasted as long as 10 minutes. Fear would overwhelm my system, and I would be shaking, rocking ball on the floor.
Over the past three years, the attacks have lessened in severity and occur less often. Part of this healing has come from time. More has come from understanding the traumas at the root of the attacks.
The National Museum of Industrial History is hosting the “Art of Precision: The Engineered Sculpture of Christopher Bathgate” now through May 31 at the museum, 602 E. Second St. The 20 plus pieces are examples of how computer-mediated fabrication may bridge the divide between art, craft, and industrial production in the Digital Age.
The artist is a self-trained machinist employing handmade tools, automated CNC milling machines and metal lathes to create complex artistic expressions inspired by industry.
