About This Portfolio

This is a listing of all the kinetic sculptures I have created since 1975. It is an archive of historical and current work. Most of these are no longer available for purchase because they were created in limited editions. Go to the Current Works page to see sculptures still available for purchase.

You will find photographs, possibly videos, and much more information on many of the sculptures by clicking on the "Click to read more..." link. I have limited information on many of the sculptures from the early years. They were created before video cameras!

About Fusion

 

Fusion is another in the line of sculptures that started with Duet and Tango. The front-most wheels of the upper patterning mechanism rotate at a fairly constant but different rate in the same direction. The back wheel that carries them rotates several revolutions clockwise and then counter-clockwise. In Fusion I have built on what I learned from the earlier designs to make a more complex and deeper set of patterns. The darker oval forms perform one level of random dance while behind them the circular crescent forms perform another in lock step. The patterns of motion change constantly not only depending on the relative speeds and directions of the wheels but also on which set of wheels, light or dark, that you focus on.

My husband bought this in New York and took it back to the UK on the plane about 10 years ago. He knew I would love it. We both do and everyone admires it. Quite a few ask us how to tell the time from it! We put up in our new home yesterday, its fourth move, and every time it works perfectly with no trouble. Love to visit one day! 9.6.11 J.W. UK

I have Inventor Released (1977) and Fusion (2002). They can both still hypnotize me. I just wish I had enough space (and money) for all the rest of your creative output. Keep it up for many more years. Is there an animated video of your work available? If so, I would like to order it.

David, We rely on YouTube and the Internet to distribute the portfolio now. There are many videos of David's work up on his YouTube Channel, and he adds new ones fairly regularly. Check it out here.
