Title: Cascade Creek Flume, June – December 1984
Location: Mill Valley, California
Size: 220’ L
Materials: Redwood lumber
Sponsor: InterArts of Marin County
Cascade Creek Flume symbolically reunited a sawmill, built in 1835 by John Reed, to its source of power, Cascade Creek, in what is now Mill Valley, California. Two hundred and twenty feet in length and constructed of rough sawn redwood, the piece brought to attention the evolution of land use in the area over the last century and a half. At the same time, it captured a cross section of the creek itself, making it accessible and safe for people and particularly children, to examine and play in its waters. The last section of the flume pivoted at its balance point, rocking back and forth with an audible cadence, as it filled and then dumped the water back to the creek. For more images....

Title: Le Pont Romaine - 3/19 - 21/1994
Location: Vaison La Romaine, France
Sponsors: Ecole D' Art Aix En Provence and Le Crestet Centre D' Art
A series of 6 inch mylar ribbons were suspended from the top of a two thousand year old Roman bridge (Le Pont Romaine) and extended to the waters of the Ovéze River, sixty feet below. Each ribbon was held in the water with 25lb. weights which held it stealy in the water when the breezes were light and acted as a stabilizer when the wind (Mistral) brought each one up into the air. Done in collaboration with a group of students from Ecole D'Art Aix En Provence, the piece, through the use of movement and reflectivity, made direct connections with the wind, sun and water and was presented as part of a celebration of the rebuilding of the region after a devastating flood.

Title: Clapotis, June - September, 1995
Location: Lake Geneva, Le Bouveret, Switzerland
Materials: repurposed boat hull, pvc, abs plastic, wood
Size: 30' X 10' X 10' W
Collaborator: Sue Richards
Sponsor: Association L.A.C., Montreux, Switzerland
In conjunction with Léman Animations Chimériques, a summer festival in Le Bouveret, Switzerland, a wave activated acoustic sculpture was installed on the edge of Lake Geneva for the 1995 summer season. The 10 meter hull from Alain IV, a sail boat which represented Switzerland in the 1960 Olympics in Japan, was used as the sound chamber and canopy.. The lapping of the lake's water activated the acoustical properties of a series of flexible PVC hoses, filling the space under the hull with lake music. For more images .......
