I have been building the monumental sculptures in aluminum since 1992. These have been free-standing with one being kinetic, "Solar Synapse". I have recently begun a series of organic abstractions called, "Out of the Petrie Dish".  The indoor pieces are made out of aluminum plate and the outdoor pieces out of Stainless Steel. The outdoor pieces may have an added feature of LED lighting embedded into the edges of the sculpture which are powered by solar panels.

The "Greenwall" installations are site specific and are made with a chainlink fence sructure which is covered with Ivy vines. These structures can be walked through and experienced as "Place" rather than as "Object"  found in traditional sculpture
