In Exalt in transmission, David McCracken creates romantic portraits of mechanical transmission. He is interested in the baroque eloquence of industrial materials, which he fabricates out of steel at a scale that is larger than life. The objects, which have humble or utilitarian beginnings, are transformed at this scale, often portraying a softness that belies their materiality.
