Ford Assembly

 

8 bronze sculptures on wood bases, ranging from 3" x 3" x 3" to 5" x 7" x 4", 2009

 

The fluid motion of the assembly line made it possible to combine the flexibility of human beings with the power of machinery. It became the backbone of industries, around which whole cities and states were built. This group of sculptures celebrates that culture.

 

 

Bridge of Sighs

 

Bronze in 4 movable parts, size variable

2003

Individual Parts:

Ship: 7.5" ht x 13.5" lg x 6"d; Wall: 7.5"ht x 11.5"lg x 8"d;  Bird: 10”ht x 6.5“lg x 3.5”d; Foot: 7”lg x 6”w x .5”d

 

This is a participatory work made of 4 unattached and independently movable shapes in bronze. The work is completed when a viewer breaks into the stillness of the arrangement to move the pieces around, becoming a co-creator in an ongoing kinetic performance, bridging the gap between artwork and viewer. Named for the bridge in Venice by Lord Byron because it was once the entrance to the Prison. Here, every time someone changes the arrangement, the piece gains a new meaning, never to be seen again.
