Location: Festival Plaza West (311 W. Chester)
Materials: Powder-coated Steel, wind powered kinetics
Size: 18' x 10' x 10'

Artists Statement:
I make large, tower mounted kinetic sculptures that fly and swim in the wind overhead, above the reach of the viewing public. The pieces dance with complex organic motion that is typical of living things. I see my sculptures as fascinating creatures that have taken up residence in the park or on the city street. The passerby is entering their domain. They seem to be aware of you. It's best to pay attention in their presence.
