"StÝckel's work is a pack horse of art historical references dressed up in a technological guise: classical sculpture, Renaissance perspective, cubism, still life, spacecraft, molecular and subatomic structures. Unlike much 'sci-art' though, his work retains an integrity that does not rely on spurious claims of interdisciplinarity. His materials do not reflect space-age possibilities, his imagery is not culled from electron microscopes and his processes are not the result of any liberal, cross-campus collaboration. StÝckel uses paper and card, polystyrene and glue; more a model maker's vocabulary than a research scientist's. This hobbyist aesthetic echoes the increasing accessibility of science to the lay community."
