get a move on, Arthur Ganson *

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful lecture by kenetic sculptor Arthur Ganson. I meant to share his work with you at the time and I hope that you'll enjoy sifting through his videos as much as I do (this is one of my favorites). Maybe it's because we are so accustomed to the precipitous, abrasive qualities of machines we interact with in our daily lives, that Ganson's delicate, quietly humming, gracefully moving pieces retain the awe that their relatively simple mechanics might not inherently bestow.
If you'd like to hear Ganson talk about his work, take a little time to watch him speak at TED-and if you're hungry for more kinetic sculptors, you'll love Theo Jansen.
