These sculptures employ a wide range of materials including wood, clay and electronics. The cameras display the rising predilection of consumers toward precision technology. The tools have become the art, recast as idols to progress.

Sachs has been making these tributes for more than three decades. Included in the body of work is a clay Nikon the eight year old artist presented to his father in 1974. Note the thoughtful inclusion of two rolls of film.
