“Jumbler” is a kinetic sculpture with a rotating plaster bowl which holds an assortment of small artifacts. The actuated bowl tumbles and jumbles the parts as it moves back and forth in a complex and varied choreography. The bowl steadily disintegrates as the objects bounce around inside, slowly filling it with dust and fragments.

The piece will premiere in September 2021 as part of This Sacred Thing at SPACE gallery in downtown in Pittsburgh, PA.
