Motion Installation in Algonquin, IL with Eihei

Motion Installation in Portsmouth, VA
from March 2011 - November 2011
 

The sculpture Motion is one of the Motion Series of sculptures. It joins other sculptures that include: Embark, Hansou, Kai, Kinpaku, Mizushou, Momentum, Nami 2, Oonami, Precipice, Skating, Soushi, Soushi2, Ugokasu, Ukei,  and Uzushio.

The genesis of the sculpture Motion was two-fold.  I wanted a larger outdoor sculpture that would convey movement - ceaseless, never-tiring movement.  Motion was conceived to represent a busy commercial district or busy commuters using a rail station.  Motion is closely related to  Kai, Nami 2, and Precipice.

About the Motion Series
Movement is an unusual activity to catch in stone.  Stone Sculpture is noted for being solid, rooted to the ground, and unchanging.  Exploring unanticipated action is the common feature of the
Motion Series. A sculpture caught in the act of falling, another sculpture caught just before it is ready to leap off its' base, another seemingly moving effortlessly across its' base.  All of these are displaying that elusive stone quality - movement.
