Site-specific, wall-mounted kinetic sculpture relief that moves in the indoor currents or when a person is passing by. The sculpture is created in hand-forged steel and aluminum. The overall size is 96" high x 68" wide x 10" deep.
The goals for integrating the commission artwork were manifold. The artwork had to be wall-mounted, kinetic and fit into a somewhat limited physical space (an entry foyer). The persons passing by should have plenty of room to move about and to view the work from a certain distance.
The clients requested an artwork that would be mounted to a wall of their entry foyer. This is how the family and the visitors enter the house and it's the first visual experience they have upon the entry. The clients wanted to convey a sense of wonder, whimsy, and appreciation of art. They are avid collectors of art and artist-made furniture. The sculpture in the foyer is a preview of other beautiful things to come.
This type of kinetic wall-mounted art can be created for very small spaces and also at a much larger scale, for public, corporate, education or healthcare projects and buildings.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
