Fergus Falls, MN
The sculptures I make stem from a combination of childhood memories and adulthood curiosities. Ever since I was a child I’ve worked on mechanical devices and kinetic sculptures. I'm fascinated by mechanical movements of almost any kind. I’m also intrigued with people’s attraction to movement. My sculptures are an exploration these fascinations. I strive to combine new and found materials to create an artistic static sculpture, that when put into motion, becomes captivating. Movement in these sculptures is created by balls rolling through gravity powered devices and tracks to the bottom, where they are once again lifted to the top. Constructed from formed and welded stainless steel, copper, brass, found metal, small electric motor and glass or stainless steel balls.
