It’s a terrier’s world, we just live in it

Alexander Calder:

My purpose is to make something like a dog, or like flames; something that has a life of its own.

A mobile is like a dog-catcher. A dog-catcher of wind. Dog-catchers go after any old dog; my mobiles catch any kind of wind, bad or good.

I’m like my mobiles; when I walk in the streets I latch onto things too.
