Don Ellis
Outdoor mobiles
"A mobile needs to be neither a weathervane nor a whirligig. It needs to be ambiguous relative to the wind. Then it will be interesting to watch and it will be involved in its venue. The movement of each piece relative to the other pieces should be unpredictable. Then its encounter with shadows, its screening of objects behind, and its color variations will be unpredictable."
