Recent kinetic sculptures and mixed media drawings by Chicago based visual artist Mark Porter.
Through the fusion of found and custom made objects, Porter creates mechanical prototypes which mimic human and animal behavior as well as natural phenomenon. Emphasizing the quality of hand-made object, Porter’s sculptures serve as performative prototypes, which embrace experimentation and the relationship between inventor and invention, as well as invention and user.
