Innovations in Obsolescence, October 2017

Nemo Gould‘s solo exhibition “Innovations in Obsolescence” opened October 21, 2017.

The Lost & Foundry resident and co-founder had a selection of new interactive tools on display, alongside many of his kinetic sculptures made from found materials.


Oakland, California-based found-object fine artist Nemo Gould has produced a prolific body of work that attempts to reconcile the innocent wonder of youth with the dull complexity of the adult experience. A look at his portfolio will deeply challenge any preconceived notion of what art made from salvaged materials can look like. His kinetic works bear clean, polished lines, exhibit fluid motion, and evoke a genuine, childlike sense of wonder and surprise.  Gould earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the Kansas City Art Institute in 1998, and his Master of Fine Arts degree at U.C. Berkeley in 2000.

His work has been featured frequently in national media and is shown in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. and abroad.
