Using steel wire, mixed materials and found objects, play with the laws of equilibrium to create kinetic mobiles. Work with lightweight delicate elements in union with heavier components using rods and various gauges of wire, chain, and linked pieces to balance these opposing objects. Explore micro welding wire, jump ring and chain making, ball bearing swivels, and other elements to create dynamic hanging sculptures. Discover how balance is deceptive as you watch your suspended work rotate freely in response to air currents or a gentle push.
