Photos of a large atrium sculpture (kinetic mobile) I custom designed, made and installed (via The Art Company) at the newly built Joint and Spine Center at the Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, OH, last month (August 2015).

It’s a custom made 12 feet (3.5 meter) tall Calderesque mobile made of carbon cold rolled steel made for a client’s two story atrium.

Photos of a large mobile (33ft/10m) suspended by a crane for adjustments, which turned out to be very minimal because the balance points and various alignments were calculated beforehand with engineering software. Most of the connections were precise and did not need any adjustments.
