About Our 'Component Art Gallery'
Our Component Art Gallery is located in the main Cinema Antiques facility in Dallas Texas and exhibits hand fabricated sculptures of artifacts and both high and low tech component materials derived from our technical lives in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Sculptor, Bill Reiter, our artist in residence, uses materials in his work, such as vintage circuit boards, integrated circuits, electronic chips, digital and analog components, tubes, drives belts, resistors, transistors, connectors, rheostats, potentiometers, gauges, analog and digital readout displays, gearings and a host of other component materials that have been used to fabricate equipment and controls of our past and current daily lives.
Pieces are wall hung sculptures, free standing sculptures, shelf displays and desk paperweights in various sizes. By shaping various technical components, from the past and present, into specialized design pieces, Reiter shapes an organic vision based on the materials and Artificial Intelligence that effect and often control our daily lives.
This view of the 'stuff of life' aggregates and separates the components of our lives into a shared vision of life among the ‘components.’ "They are all around us."
By mastering, re purposing and controlling these A.I. component bits, we may gain a better look at where we come from, how we learn and work. These works enable us in seeing the highly complex hardware, salvage, surplus and artifacts of our society in all of its negative as well as positive influences.
Clients have sent us 'components' from their lives and ask us to shape them into sculptures by refinishing and otherwise bringing new life to these components and make them displayable and more meaningful.
A flywheel from a 1949 DeSoto, a rectifier from an old family radio, a mainframe from a 1960s computer that started a company off and running.
All the parts and A.I.‘components’ of our lives are asking for respectful preservation and design objectification.
Please ask for more information you may need.

Due to the nature of online photo reproduction we cannot be responsible for exact photographic color, hue, contrast and exposure accuracy in our photos. While we do our best to display photos that are as accurate as possible, our photos may or may not depict the absolute EXACT hue or color tone of our antiques due to the many variables in image photography, image exporting, image uploading and viewer monitor accuracy. Please ask about color tone and hue BEFORE buying, if this is a concern! We have a gallery showroom where all of our antiques are on display and we will gladly offer in person viewings of our antiques to any designers and buyers that need to 'put eyes' on our antiques. We welcome all visits to our gallery, by appointment. less
