I designed Neptunian Frolic in a CAD program
(Rhino). The animation below is derived from that CAD design.
It may take a while to load, but then it should rotate once
every seven seconds.
Neptunian Frolic is an arrangement of three
abstract forms suggesting animals from the deep sea. For as
long as I can remember, animals that live in the water have
intrigued me. I suppose my interest stems from my enjoyment
of swimming and my imagined sense of swimming like a porpoise,
a fish, an otter or some other animal. I love going to large
aquariums and watching fish and other animals swimming. Their
streamlined shapes are beautiful. Their movements are like
As the sculpture's name implies, I intended
for Neptunian Frolic to have a playful quality. Many water
animals seem to have moments of playing--porpoises riding
the wake of a boat, otters twirling in the water, whales breaching.
Perhaps it is simply a human projection, but, none-the-less,
it feeds the imagination. Who has not pretended to be a fish
at some time? When we swim we are unbound by gravity, free
to move in three dimensions.
Neptunian Frolic is constructed of pigmented,
fiberglass-reinforced cement applied to an armature of steel
rod and wire mesh.
