Kinetic sculpture resides at the intersection of artistic inspiration and mechanical complexity. The making of one of my pieces relies on creative expression, metal fabrication, and a slow design process in equal parts.
These kinetic sculptures are powered by wind or motors that cycle continuously through hypnotic motions that resemble something between the tentacles of an octopus and an alien spacecraft.
Weighing up to 725kg each artwork is first built digitally to test how it will move and react to the force of wind once fabricated in the real world.
