When most people look at a mobile, they see the sail, the shape at the end of the rod. I call this a sail, because it catches the movement of air that powers the mobile. But it's the rods on which I concentrate as I build. A mobile is a line drawing in space, a line drawing that is constantly changing. Even when I create a mobile with colorful, whimsical sails on which the viewer's eye focuses, it's the lines created by the lengths and angles of the rods to eachother that really determines whether the piece will have the staying power I strive for in my work.
