FRENCH WEST INDIES, FRANCE
A metalsmithing course germinated A. M. Lillys sculptural kinetics, which synthesize mathematics, art and performance. She has studied engineering, architecture and art, worked for design and construction offices in England, Switzerland and the US, and traveled throughout Europe where she became fascinated with modern circus.
Us & Them is a kinetic sculpture created for the City of Boston. Originally conceived to reflect upon divisions within our society, it was completed shortly after September 11. Two identical elements move in similar patterns, but by small differences of circumstances, are rarely in the same place.
