M.T. Skirt No.6
My commitment to wind activated sculpture and its connection to the environment has been a passion of mine during my entire career.
My sculptures address nature (wind, light and movement and in this case buoyancy) and are appropriate for a variety of outdoor settings. Floating works of mine have been displayed in Druid Reservoir and the Baltimore Harbor. Kinetic sculptural elements indicate the rotation of the earth, velocity of the wind and mark time.
Water is a great place to site public art. The newest floating full-scale work (2019) is M.T. Skirt No.6. The sculpture flips into wind, changes direction and flips into the wind again.
I anchored the piece in the Patapsco River enhancing the natural waterfront setting of south Baltimore's Middle Branch Park experience. The sculpture was partially funded by Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts.
