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 Pegasus

 

Pegasus is the immortal winged horse of Greek mythology. This sculpture reminds me of the beat of wings, hence the name.

The two large wheels are separated by a simple mechanism that is only triggered when the front wheel loses momentum. The mechanism pushes the wheels in opposite directions at varying speeds that depend on the orientation of the back wheel when the mechanism is activated. At times both wheels will rotate in opposite directions at the same rate and at other times the back wheel will rock back and forth, visually "locking" with the front wheel and then opposing it.

 

This is a quiet piece with a very soft, random clicking sound for most of its cycle.
