Chris Fitch - Finding Movement

THU, DEC 5, 2019

Sculptor, engineer and inventor Chris Fitch will talk about his explorations as a artist, using engineering and dance as inspiration for his kinetic sculptures.

+ BIO: Chris Fitch

Chris Fitch is a sculptor, engineer and inventor. His prize winning mechanical sculptures, installations and performance based artwork have been presented internationally. His puppets and state of the art miniature theaters have appeared with major symphony productions in New York and Los Angeles.

His credits for work in animation include Sesame Street, Motorola, Disneyland, and Samsung.

Many of Chris’ pieces have no particular narrative arc, and instead are about adding rhythmic complexity to the cycle, creating mechanical expressions that have more in common with dance or music than with storytelling. Often these abstractions carry suggestions of natural rhythms, like rain or blowing grass, or bubbles rising in a column of water.
