Spotlight on "The Tot"
The City of Newport Beach, Sculpture Garden, 2020

A video shot by the City of Newport Beach, California, providing a grand view of their beautiful sculpture park and featuring The Tot. Regarding the steampunk reference, that wasn't my intent, but I can see that and I am always excited to hear what others personally see and feel.

The Tot was born as I emerged from deafness. A big brother to my 2005 Queen of the Sea with some nods to Koons, KAWS, Hirst and of course -- my childhood Disneyland.
