Amy Riding the Golden Cricket by Ken Rinaldo was created for an exhibition Beam Me Up, curated by Leonel Moura.
The work was a 3D rapid prototyped two-headed cricket with a bull-like saddle and a figure riding the “bull” cricket. The result is painted gold and mounted on Woman Art and Technology book by Judy Malloy.
This was my way of having Amy enter this book, as I have always felt she should be within. I could also find two articulated toys to create a mini world and one that reminded me of my superhero Amy with red hair.
Notice the figure is holding a Woman’s Tear Machine Gun the ultimate metaphor for disarming and peaceful uses of technology is the flaccid gun.
It was a repurposed 3D model that I created for the Trans-Species show and repurposed for this exhibition.
The 3D models of Amy Riding the Golden Cricket.
The concept for the show was Leonel Moura, who wanted to have all works arrive digitally to be printed at his gallery.

I was excited by this idea, though I I felt I would have a more complete work that involved other elements such as the book.
