ejection seats and contrail sculptures
I'm writing a short catalog essay about Max Greuter's work and am focusing on his ejection and contrail works. He's an artist based in Zurich and works like a tinkerer in a wood shop yet uses more and more 3D design software to craft various objects and images that explore the euphorias and anxieties associated with aeronautics and propulsion. Greuter pretends he has his own private space agency and always wanted to be an astronaut.
