Each of Mark White’s beautiful kinetic sculptures comes with this disclaimer: “Extended viewing may cause extreme relaxation and bouts of pleasant daydreaming! My experience with kinetic sculptures spans twenty years; always creating new and innovative designs that harness the wind and weave spellbinding imagery in the air. These sculptures have a Zen energy that is soothing and delightful to watch.”
Mark refers to his creation process as often serendipitous, following a certain line of experimentation without clinging to a known hypothesis. Each precisely balanced structure is made to withstand 100 M.P.H. winds, yet is delicate enough to move with the slightest breath of wind. As the blades rotate, they create curvilinear parallelograms that shrink and expand at slower speeds and pulsate with stronger winds.
The finish on these outdoor sculptures is applied in multiple layers and contains the best ultraviolet and corrosion inhibitors available; providing the best possible long lasting protection. Developed by the artist after many years of experimentation, each finish is a unique patina. It is applied using a hot process which binds the color to the metal.
