Ted Larsen has the eyes of an artist, the hands of a man
used to working with materials and machinery, and the
mind of a philosopher-visionary.
For him, making art is as much about the contemplation and
planning that goes into a piece as it is about the actual construction
of the work—or even the finished piece itself. He cares
deeply about art and its interface with both the theoretical world
and the practical; and when the tall, lean Larsen comes into his
intimate studio, he fits it to himself as if it were a shimmering
carapace he drapes over his being.
