From a pack rat's treasure trove of motors, toys, and other bric-a-brac, Steve Gerberich builds some of the most entertaining contraptions you've ever seen.
A self-proclaimed lover of hand tools or any useful invention without a power cord, Gerberich turns discarded labor-saving devices into a wealth of fantastical sculptures.
Press a button or crank a wheel and Steve Gerberich's sculptures come to life. A flock of decoy geese overhead flap open suitcase wings. A wooden cow with hooves clad in high-top sneakers is milked endlessly by an over-enterprising farmer. This awe-inspiring show contains 30 of Gerberich's sculptures built during a 12 year span, and can be site specifically installed up to 5,000 square feet.
Prepare for 2500 square feet of winter wonderland to investigate.
Everything from kitchen utensils to industrial bits to carnival figurines get put to use in this 2000 square foot conglomeration. Perfect for a smaller venue.

Most of the time, these installations grant me full artistic freedom. I remain self-represented and have been fortunate to have installed work privately.
