The purpose of this paper is a formal examination of the exhibition titled “NonAutomata” by Jeremy Haynes, as partial fulfillment of requirements for a Master of Fine Arts degree from Stephen F. Austin State University.
By examining the psychological influences within my artwork, I question the assumption that we are all just organic machines built with the same parts although we are all assembled and wired differently to perform specific tasks in society. I recall my personal experiences and how these influence my reactions to everyday life. While using clay with traditional and non-traditional processes, I have been able to connect through a visual language with society and come to understand more fully that people react differently to any given situation. As I have explored that “man is a machine” I have been able to push my creativity as an artist so the artwork can take on different meanings depending on the viewers experiences.
