It isn't my kinetic sculpture but one created by James Borden. I experience the same challenges with display. I have never been able to understand the uncontrollable urge people have to touch mechanical objects! Their curiosity just gets the better of them. This unfortunate video comes from the National Watch and Clock Museum of Columbia, PA. That certainly looks like an interesting place to visit.
I have recently released a new kinetic wall sculpture expanding my exploration into flight-themed kinetic sculptures. Sky Duet is a larger piece comprised of two single bird designs mounted to interact with each other. The result is a peaceful piece reminiscent of birds dancing among fluffy summer clouds.

I have revisited the flight theme often in the 40+ years I have been producing kinetic sculpture. To see a history of all my flight oriented pieces click here.

Marji and I were recently interviewed by Lara Ehrlich of Boston University for a piece in their spring edition of the College of Arts and Sciences magazine. I have a degree in Physics from BU (CAS ’74) and they discovered one of their alum was doing something a little on the weird side. She wrote a wonderful piece that I think captures the essence of our 40 year career with Wood That Works. We also spent a day with the photographer Pat Piasecki, and another with videographers Joe Chan and Jason Kimball. We had a lot of fun talking with Lara and working with the entire BU team as they put together the article and two videos. Here are some links to the article and videos.
