Clock of Dreams

“Clock of Dreams” 36 foot kinetic tower for the Engineering Department, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM.

This sculpture runs on the power of the wind. The four eight-foot faces each perform a different task. The clock (which runs on electricity) tells time. The eyes on the face open and close. A hammer goes up and down and concentric circles spin. It represents the four elements which make up creativity, time, inspiration, work and chance.

I also helped design the plaza where the piece stands. The plaza, which consists of large concentric gears, leaves room for plaques, which commemorate significant discoveries by members of the NMSU community. The plaza has become a meeting place for campus-wide activities.
