About This Portfolio

This is a listing of all the kinetic sculptures I have created since 1975. It is an archive of historical and current work. Most of these are no longer available for purchase because they were created in limited editions. Go to the Current Works page to see sculptures still available for purchase.

You will find photographs, possibly videos, and much more information on many of the sculptures by clicking on the "Click to read more..." link. I have limited information on many of the sculptures from the early years. They were created before video cameras!

About Tandem Nautilus

 

I’ve developed a variety of mechanisms to control and power my sculptures but one that I always return to is the center pin wheel and two “arms” assembly. It is a quiet, efficient and reliable source of oscillating motion. I moved to a new generation of that mechanism in this sculpture by “laying out” the “arms” next to each other rather than overlapping them. I like the slow sedate pattern this creates especially in counterpoint to the more rapid and random patterns generated by the top assembly. This new arrangement also allows for greater flexibility in the physical design of the “arms”. In Tandem the shapes selected are determined not so much by their function but by the overall design of the sculpture.
