Biography

Systems House, also known by his given name Martin Fletcher, creates modular sculptures reminiscent of radio towers, satellite dishes, or mini transceivers. Precise constructions of brass and steel, the forms echo modernist architecture and a utilitarian aesthetic. While only ambiguously suggestive of purpose, Fletcher’s pieces, with titles like Acoustic Reflector Unit (2008) and Transportation Transceiver Unit (2009), combine nostalgia with futurism and venerate traditions of design and technological innovation.
