The collection is made up of 11 pieces, which merge modern technology with old time inventions. The result is both dream-like and fantastical.

''I liked the idea of the confluence of art and science...assembling two disparate objects that result in some third medium.'' BJ Sears.

BJ Sears taught at Savannah College of Art and Design and was a celebrated film editor. During his years in Los Angeles, he worked with films such as Amadeus, Jacob's LadderHenry & June and The Unbearable Lightness of Being.

These sculptures represent his passion for history, for example the Electrophonic Anacroscope explores the idea of time travel. Sear's niece Kelsey Sundberg describes her uncle's work as: ''Sears launches his experiments into art, mechanics and contemporary digital technology. Creating his narrative through historical facts that run just alongside the truth.''
