The scientist and the artist are both passionate about their exploration. What leads to my work is that I’m equally an artist and an engineer.
I guess I’m fascinated with motion because I find that whenever anything is moving, I have some feeling about it. It doesn’t matter what kind of motion it is. A motion will always evoke some kind of reaction.
The impulse for me to want to make sculpture is because I want to make statements, really, on a purely emotional level. And it’s also somewhat of a challenge to see how that can be done with materials and objects that really are not emotional, in and of themselves.
I happen to love engineering. I love figuring things out in a spatial sense, that whole realm of working with mechanical parts, and the relationship of the parts, and things like ratios and the speeds of particular objects.
