David recently received a friendly email from Didier Legros of France. He shared that he has been following David's work for years and that he also follows this blog. But he also included a link to a video of his newest creation called "Chaos". It is an extraordinary rolling ball machine. Didier said that he has been creating kinetic sculpture for ten years and working on this piece for the past 7 months. He has put over 1700 hours into is creation.
The sculpture includes five independent units and 50 jumping balls along with over 8 linear meters of movement. He has also put a lot of time into creating a mesmerizing video which focuses on interesting smaller motions within the whole. Take a few minutes to enjoy "Chaos" by Didier Legros.
This sculpture will be traveling to NYC next May. Hopefully I'll get a chance to see it.
Here is a link to Didier's website with more information about Didier and his other kinetic sculptures.
