"Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment is the recognition of the pattern." Alfred North Whitehead

System controlled kinetic sculpture.
The art is in the patterns.

24 Spheres 1, private

The arrangement of the kinetic members is elemental to the 
final pattern display.  As you can see, 24 spheres in a circle generates very different patterns than 24 spheres arranged in a line.

The system includes a number of identical kinetic members, motors, and an interactive control unit.

The choice of materials, while important to the system, yields to the system's movements once activated.

With a full palette of electromechanical tools at my disposal, as well as an infinite array of patterns, the breadth of possibilities is boundless.
