Mechanical Insects!

Colossal has uncovered another kinetic artist and shared his work on their website. The work of Dedy Shofianto of Indonesia is fascinating and unique.  Check out these incredible mechanical insects all constructed from jati teak wood.

They are kinetic and rely on electric components to create the motion. You can get more information about Dedy Shofianto at the following resources:

It isn't my kinetic sculpture but one created by James Borden. I experience the same challenges with display.  I have never been able to understand the uncontrollable urge people have to touch mechanical objects! Their curiosity just gets the better of them.  This unfortunate video comes from the National Watch and Clock Museum of Columbia, PA. That certainly looks like an interesting place to visit.

Sky Duet • Flight Themed Kinetic Sculpture

I have recently released a new kinetic wall sculpture expanding my exploration into flight-themed kinetic sculptures. Sky Duet is a larger piece comprised of two single bird designs mounted to interact with each other. The result is a peaceful piece reminiscent of birds dancing among fluffy summer clouds. 

Click on the triangle in the image below to see the graceful motion of this piece.

I have revisited the flight theme often in the 40+ years I have been producing kinetic sculpture. To see a history of all my flight oriented pieces click here.
