Robert Chambers



Miami native Robert Chambers is an accomplished artist, curator, teacher, motivator and creative tinkerer. Beyond creating his own work, he has an extraordinary ability to bring together blockbuster exhibits that have made the Miami art scene one of the most interesting in the country. His work juxtaposes scientific methods and ideas with humor, religious motifs and social themes. His kinetic piece for Sculpture Key West 2007 is designed to vibrate nearby architecture. These measurements are called Eigenvalues and are of importance to engineers when they analyze and design a structure in terms of its stability of motion.
