Here is how Bernie describes his work:
During my time designing and fabricating kinetic sculptures I have explored a variety of different materials and several different kind of assemblages. Some are like mobiles in that they hang from the ceiling. Others are wall pieces having multiple moving parts. When these pieces move there are changing visual and kinesthetic patterns different from the traditional mobile. Others have changing Moire patterns or light reflections and shadows. Many of these are directly interactive. There is also a series of water sculptures in which various materials wave and undulate with the moving currents. Outdoor wind pieces have also sometimes been tested and built with designs that react to light and strong air currents.
For many years I was involved in science education in several capacities. During my time at the
Boston Children’s Museum I was involved in designing and enacting various activities for after school programs and the classroom. Some of these activities were made into 16 children’s science activity books and 4 curriculum projects. I also designed a number of hands-on exhibits that traveled to other children’s museums and science centers. Bubbles and Raceways after 25 years are still entertaining visitors at the museum. For the past 20 years I have also been exploring ways of designing kinetic sculptures. These are of various designs which are interactive or moved by ambient air currents. Some of these have been in a number of indoor and outdoor shows.
