High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Tony Price (1937-2000)
was a self-styled "Atomic Artist" and outspoken antinuclear
activist. After visiting Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1967 and
discovering their salvage yard, he began to create utilitarian
objects such as chairs and tables and musical instruments,
especially wind chimes and gongs, out of their discarded scraps. He
later moved on to creating sculptures, and his most famous works
are a group of primitive-inspired masks created out of scrap metal,
many of them based on Hopi kachinas. He constructed out of Los
Alamos surplus scraps a sculpture that discharged high voltage
lightening through dark clouds of steel filings, that he sold to
Dennis Hopper, and with the proceeds he constructed a wind-chime
out of tons of steel cylinders cut to lengths, determined from a
chart that had a quadrant of a circle inscribed in a square.
