About Quest

 

Quest is a relatively long running, “floating” motion sculpture. The two overlapping split wheels are driven by the center pin wheel and some small levers called “pawls”. This assembly is in turn driven by a winding wheel powered by a negator spring. The bird form moves rapidly through a variety of random but repeating visually mesmerizing straight-line and elliptical patterns. This is the 5th generation of this type of motion, started in 1987 with Voyager. In each new piece I’ve tried a different mechanism to control the motion. In many ways I find this one to be the most successful.
