Bob Turan has been a filmmaker, artist, and sculptor and has gravitated to public art since moving to upstate New York from Washington, DC. With a cinematic eye and a welder's arc, Bob brings light, motion and mass to his work. He contrasts weathered and polished, light and dark, mass and space. Bob often works in four dimensions, allowing time to show the kinetic aspects of a piece. He enjoys the fabrication as much as the design, and usually refines the concept during construction. In the end, he feels there is some of "Vulcan's power" in his work. (Vulcan - the Roman god of fire and metalworking - not to be confused with any Star Trek characters or species).
