My aim in designing Avian Muse was to create
a mobile that worked with the architectural features of the
lobby of the Robert Morgade Library, while abstractly representing
the bird life of Martin County, Florida. In the design one
can easily see feathers, eggs, wings, and nests. I hope that
viewers may also sense the gestural qualities relating to
birds--like the graceful swoops and gliding arcs of birds'
flight. The color combinations are derived from birds that
one might find in Martin County--Cardinal, Ruby-crested Kinglet,
Robin, Purple Gallinule, Roseate Spoonbill, Scrub Jay, Mallard,
American Kestrel, and Painted Bunting.
