TRIBUTARIES: KIRK LANG
March 8 - June 15, 2014
Inspired by both micro and macro universes and the mechanics of the solar system, Lang has produced a new body of kinetic sculpture for this exhibition. Driven
by a sophisticated motorized system, which is activated by sensors, each sculpture will move and respond to the presence of viewers. Based in Seattle, Washington, Lang has
taught at the University of Washington and the Cleveland Institute of Art.
