Fornax was the divine personification of the oven in ancient Roman religion and was evoked especially.in the baking of bread. With this work I want to engage viewers curiosity about what is energy and the role it plays in our civilisation’s progress and development. Domestication of wheat 10,000 years ago in modern day Iran was the first great energy transformation experiment that humans began. Wheat alongside other plant and animal domestication led to humans being able to become sedentary, led to the rise of the first cities and effectively ‘powered’ civilization out of the stone age. Nuclear fusion represents a potential step change in technology that would ultimately lead us into the next great epoch in the history of human civilisation: maybe the Fusion Age – characterised by the availability of ubiquitous clean energy. For the painting I started with images of the tokamak and reduced the various machine parts and cables to simple geometric shapes and created repetitions and rhythms within the painting. The tokamak is an doughnut shaped experimental machine designed to harness the energy of nuclear fusion. Inside a tokamak, the energy produced through the fusion of atoms is absorbed as heat in the walls of the vessel. Just like a conventional power plant, a fusion power plant will use this heat to produce steam and then electricity by way of turbines and generators.
