Brett Dickins • New Work

Brett is a kinetic sculptor working from the otherside of the world in Australia. But thanks to the wonders of the digital world those of us interested in odd things (like kintectic sculpture) get to stay connected and share work. Brett recently emailed me about a new piece he has just finished with a YouTubelink. 

Brett writes the following about this piece: "The video shows my mechanical butterfly sculpture titled "Butterfly Effect." The sculpture features a mechanical butterfly made of wood and aluminum, with small turning gears on its body. It takes a different flight path on each rotation of the main gear, taking millions of revolutions to follow the same flight path again."
