Boom Booms

Sculptures in The Sky


One of my favorite ways of showcasing my sculpture is to put them on articulating boom lifts and move them around in the air. I first had the idea back in 2008 and I proposed it to several curators and directors but didn’t get the green light until the director of Pop-Tech went for it at their conference in Maine back in 2011. See the video attached below. Since then, there have been several. Here are some images from those.




A Twist

An Alternate Body

This post offers a glimpse into some of my alternate sculptures. Making two dimensional drawings that I usually draw, transfer, and cut by hand from plywood. I assemble the pieces to become sculptures. The drawings often become divergent explorations of unique pairs. Here are some examples from past exhibitions. With these works I examine the concept of individual reincarnation and the notion of multiple universes. Each line is an example of reality collapsing on the one. With this work I beg the question. What is the sound of one hand clapping?
