Scale is essential to my work. Small intricate sculptures draw the audience in close to view the work intimately. This closeness can create a quiet atmosphere allowing the viewer to reminisce about the past or daydream for the future. The architectural elements reference, but do not point to specific buildings. Instead the juxtaposed components encourage the audience to place them in an imagined environment.
Incorporating mechanisms add a layer of interaction to the work. They allow the viewer to further explore the piece. In each kinetic sculpture I try to find new and interesting ways of adding movement. I began with hinges and more recently introduced apertures.
