Trimpin is fascinated by an ongoing exploration of the concepts of sound, vision and movement, experimenting with combinations that will introduce the viewer’s senses of perception to a totally new experience. Although Trimpin uses the latest technology available, he works with “natural” elements—water, air, light, fire, etc.—and reconfigures them in new and unusual applications, pushing them to the limits, and beyond, of what we traditionally think of as their role.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Trimpin is a Seattle-based kinetic sculptor, sound artist, engineer, and inventor. A MacArthur Fellow (also known as “The MacArthur Genius Grant”), he was locally celebrated in 2005 with a survey of his work, shown throughout the Northwest for the entirety of the year with installations and performances at the Seattle Art Museum, the Henry Art Gallery, and the Frye Art Museum, to name a few.
