Joel Sampson combines technology, visual art, music, and design to create works of art that remind viewers they are witness to a one-man band...minus the man. Fun, whimsical, annoying, clever, loud, and ingenious are words that describe the finished works. Sampson hand builds and programs his “electro-mechanical sound art” that combines solenoids, LED lights, wires, found objects, and microcomputers. Stimulating multiple senses, these fascinating objects leave a lasting impression on viewers.
