What We Fund

"Octet" by Lin Emery


2014 | New Orleans

Material: polished aluminum

This sculpture is part of The Helis Foundation Collection

“My sculpture is kinetic, meaning that it moves. The elements are derived from nature, and I borrow natural elements – wind, water, magnets – to set them in motion. The rhythms are influenced by infinite variables: the points of balance, the normal frequency of each form, the interruption of the counterpoise. I juggle, juxtapose, and adjust to achieve the dance or pantomime that I want. Then, the sculpture takes over and invents a fillip of its own.” –Lin Emery
