My Swingin Machines

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

I will create special mobiles and stabiles for this show, depending on location. The variation of the forms and the views within the forms enhance the whole. The motion and altered perspective of these sculptures engage people's attention in a new way. The construction technique transforms this light weight, flexible material into a strong and durable sculpture that can withstand an outdoor public setting.

Venue & Connection Information

These mobiles are to be suspended with stainless steel cable, They are entirely weatherproof and can be hung much as banners are, but do need to be suspended out of reach of teenagers. The stabiles need to be displayed in a secure location as they are lightweight and therefore are quite portable. They are appropriate for both and indoor or outdoor locations.
