I have been in my profession for 60 years. I completed my first site specific outdoor project in 1958 for Indiana University. I designed, fabricated and installed an outdoor bulletin board, display case and a colorful wind-powered kinetic tower to symbolize and promote the Indiana University Art Department.
I have continued to develop the “Anemotive Kinetic” concept throughout the ensuing years.
While creating a large body of “Anemotive Kinetic” sculptures, I also continued to explore and express my understanding of the nature of our environment with other nonverbal works. The vastness of the universe and the minuteness of the particles that give this vastness its form, space and energy have continued to fascinate me throughout my life.
My thinking and my creative processes are extraordinarily involved with time, space and motion. The relativity of these three aspects of reality in human existence and experience and in the functioning of the natural world is phenomenal. While exploring this phenomenon, I have created four unique series of kinetic works and five series of implied kinetic works. Most recently I have been investigating my primary subject with an implied kinetic series that I call “Point Traveling Through Space at an Erratic Speed.”
