Mobile One…. is a balanced hanging knetic abstract sculpture. Constructed entirely of recycled beaverwood, stones and twine and sealed in a poly shell. The piece hangs and pivets from one point and is balanced perfectly. Several egg shaped stones of various sizes are used as counter weights and hang at different hieghts forcing a interesting balance.
All of this talk is merely the result of connecting two sticks together with no plan and/or direction….just an idea or thought of knetic energy and the time, patience and know how to see it to fruition. The idea of a mobile is now reality and is currently resting in a new crate I custom built for the unique form of the mobile. Of course the crate is also recycled materials…why do one and not the other..
All comments welcome….AARRGGG!!!

When I look at this I see something primitive. It gives me images of early Man and archeological finds. I’m not sure if this has meaning to you or if I completely missed your point, but I love it. By the way it’s good to see another Nodak here at LJs.

This is fun. I agree with the scenario of Calder meets caveman.

That looks pretty cool. Seems to have a primitive draw to it for sure. Some inner recognition. You do well keeping it uncluttered and flowing. For a little tension you might hang it from a ceiling fan. Don’t turn it on, just for the tension factor. ;)
