Building Mobiles

Ray learned about dangling sculpture through Alexander Calder. He gained much insight into their behavior while recovering from cancer. A mobile hung in his hospital room. He was able to influence it’s movement by aiming the respirator outlet. He has built quite a few since his recovery, using materials such as CD blanks.
His most recent inspiration has came after a visit to Trash for Teachers. T4T’s web site describes their mission as “working to inspire educators, students, communities and businesses to rethink what others overlook. We are passionate about hands-on learning and we believe that curiosity and experimentation are the core of critical thinking & ingenuity”. Shiva Mandell  Director of Creative Programming, took Ray on a tour of the T4T facilities. Durring the tour Shiva and Ray came upon  a carton of optical lenses.
