Creator / Artist statement.

Luminous Rex is a project by artist/engineer/entrepreneur Erik Bakke. Beauty is found in natural materials and the entropic physical forces of nature: oxidation, erosion, decomposition, the passage of time. Steel, wood, and concrete help to tell this story. The juxtaposition of these physical materials and digital technology, AI, machine learning, and robotics provide a bridge linking these two worlds.

The work here is a representative sampling of Erik's work over the years.

The Luminous Rex Mission

My mission is to learn, create, and explore technology and art. By combining new and old technology and materials, both fabulous and disastrous results are made manifest. These pages are a light docementation of my process.
