My inspirations come from the L.A. lifestyle that I grew up in, contrasting the slick hurried feel of the city on one hand with the organic embrace of the mountains and miles of beach on the other. My kinetic work tries to bring some of the the wind and waves back into this city. I often use discarded film reels rescued from the archives of major studios, giving them a new life in this age of digital. Lately I'm working with wire sculptures which are an extension of my kinetic art. I'm still using metal but the movement comes from the curves in the design that your eye can slide on. The wire sculptures are made from one continues wire which is more difficult but enhances the fluid motion when observed.
