Entry 31 video from Kim Wheaton

ARTIST: Kim Wheaton

TITLE: Abundance

Displays: Hangs from ceiling

Height (w/out hanging wire): 56 in

Max Width: 50 in

Weight: 1 lbs


Made of aluminum flashing material (used on houses around chimneys), galvanized and silver-coated copper wire, and jewelry findings. The many cascading branches of this piece rotate gently and the aluminum pieces flutter like leaves on a tree. The colors shift between silver, grey, gold and bronze. When air currents are still, the aluminum pieces resemble a tree heavy with fruit. When I think of Calder-esque mobiles they are often made of sparse geometry. My mobile is about softness and fullness and has a more organic quality.
