Jim Merz     Kinetic Sculpture



I build computer-controlled, kinetic sculpture as a way to demarcate time and space. I start each piece with a basic concept for the moving elements. I use multiple similar elements moving in relationship to each other and to their supporting structure.

I use a similar approach in creating live video performance or visual music.

Not only is time the medium in which I work, but it is also the constant theme.  With these moving elements I look to evoke the dynamic relationships I see all around me - the ebb and flow of everyday life.
