Large Custom Made Mobiles and Suspended Kinetic Art Installations


I’m a sculptor specializing in mobiles and suspended kinetic art installations. In addition to my ready-to-ship mobiles, I design, build and install custom mobiles from small to large scale.

A good example of my previous work are the large custom mobiles I made for the Twinkle by Wenlan New York Fashion Week show at Bryant Park, where I had only twenty minutes between shows to bring in five large mobiles, unpack them, assemble them, install them, and everything had to pass with the insurance inspector. The mobiles had to have a strong visual impact while not interfering with the models, the audience or the structure holding all the lights above the runway. The design of the mobiles was based on fabric patterns used in the collection.

Another good example are the three large custom mobiles I designed, made and installed in the atrium of the Fair Oaks Marriott in Fairfax, Virginia (via P3 Design Collective and Apple Hospitality REIT). Measuring about 20 feet each in diameter and weighing only 15 pounds, they took only 2 1/2 hours to install, including height adjustments. The mobiles won 3rd Prize in the 2015 International Kinetic Art Competition and the hotel is now ranked the #2 Marriott Hotel in North America for “Stylish and up-to-date Design/Decor”.

If you’re interested, please contact me with some details, such as a description, a photo or a render of your space, design or style preferences, the approximate dimensions you’d like the mobile or kinetic art installation to have, budget, and the time frame you’re working with.
