Public Art in Los Angeles, Southern California and Hawai'i
George Rickey's sculptures were engineered to withstand strong winds while remaining responsive to light breezes.
Rickey designed the articulation of several simple components, such as the thin arms of this sculpture, to produce combinations of complex movements.
Stillman's kinetic design uses heavier and counter-balanced components suitable for desert high winds. This public artwork is in Palm Desert, California.
Adjacent to the Oxnard Airport in California, this sculpture's kinetic design illustrates its aviation theme by simulating aircraft aileron movement.
The whimsical design and citrus theme of this kinetic work by Nancy Mooslin complements the surrounding neighborhood park and the Ventura, California community's citrus heritage.
This large abstract work serves as an iconic entry sculpture for the Escena neighborhood in Palm Springs, California.
Unlike kinetic wind sculptures, Narduli's building-mounted kinetic video sculpture exhibits more than 40 hours of looped digital video animations, "generative visualization" and live feeds.
These quickly rotating panels produce a glittering effect from both daytime sunlight and the evening street lights in downtown Los Angeles, California.
Ned Kahn's unusual site-specific design includes both an architectural tower and undulating "Kaynemaile" mesh strips to produce the billowy effect of "enagua" ["in water"] fabric.
Hollis and Murch's site-specific project included both the kinetic sculpture (suggestive of "grasshopper" oil pump motion) and public space design.
