Working with the Wind: A Conversation with Tim Prentice

Tim Prentice is a kinetic sculptor whose works can be seen in many public buildings and corporate collections, including American Express, Bank of America, Citigroup, Mobil, AT&T, and Hewlett-Packard. He received a master’s degree in architecture from Yale in 1960 and founded the award-winning architectural firm of Prentice and Chan in 1965. Ten years later, he moved to Cornwall, Connecticut, to design and fabricate kinetic sculpture. Over the last few years, he has completed installations in Japan, Korea, Northern Ireland, Australia, and Taiwan.
