ORRERY (ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS).
Hand-cranked kinetic sculpture made in 2018. Viewers control magnets to spin concrete balls creating analogies to the maneuverings that anyone who has been in a relationship will recognize.
Built for the Garden of Memory at the Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland, Summer Solstice 2008. Controlled by motion sensors that when triggered grind plastic coffee lids into stretched nylon strings. Also shown in Time Sensitive Materials with Bodil.
I made these hand-cranked instruments for theThe Garden of Memory, Summer Solstice 2005. The volunteers who helped with the performance became the Crank Ensmble
Installation at the San Francisco Art Institute, 2003. It was an ornithopter using a bike wheel that miraculously had a song within it.
There are two of them. They traveled along a string that was suspended over a three-story space and amplified. When they encounter the railing or each other, they reverse direction. I made these for the The Garden of Memory, Summer Solstice 2004
One person show at the LAB, May 2003. I built a 30 ft. bamboo airplane. It had "engines". which were sound-generating machines controlled by motion sensors and amplified. Apologies to Bella Feldman
