I make Kinetic Sculpture, especially complex mechanical pieces with gears, linkages, etc. I have a line of small, production pieces, mostly made of paper and wood, that I make and sell on a full time basis, called MechaniCards®.
My audience consists of anyone who enjoys observing, and interacting with moving objects.
My studio is located at 4732 Stenton Avenue, in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, PA.
I’ve been making art of one kind or another my entire life. I started making kinetic sculptures when I was about 14 years old.
More than 50 years.
Like most anyone, and most any animal for that matter, I am fascinated by objects in motion. I’m especially intrigued by the effects on perception that various kinds of movement evoke, including the curvature of light, and the persistence of vision.
Bernie Lubell, Chris Fitch, Arthur Ganson, Marcel DuChamp, and Roland Emmett are all artist/makers of kinetic sculpture whom I admire.
I’m currently working on the design of a large installation piece that will cover a 30 foot long wall, and produce algorithmic musical compositions.
