Ralfonso - Kinetic Sculptures

KINETIC, LIGHT & INTERACTIVE SCULPTURES

Media

Ralfonso: Designer of environmentally interactive, kinetic, light and sound sculptures (sculptures that interact with the environment such as wind, water, etc.) since 1980. Since 1999 he specializes in the design and execution of large to monumental kinetic and light sculptures for public places from his studios in West Palm Beach, Florida, USA and Geneva, Switzerland.
His passion in life is Kinetic Art for Public Places. With this passion, as president from its inception, he co-founded the Kinetic Art Organization (KAO) www.kinetic-art.org in 2001 with a German and a US fellow Kinetic Artist. Now, with more than 1,000 members in over 60 Countries around the world, KAO has become the largest kinetic art organization in the world.
All Ralfonso kinetic sculptures move, as they interact with water, wind, electricity, as well as with the natural environment and most importantly, the viewer.
Sculpture designs range in size from 2ft. to 60ft. Sculptures have been exhibited or installed in Switzerland, Netherlands, Russia, China, Germany, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates and the USA.
