I am so lucky to have seen one of this artist's kinetic sculptures at ARTPRIZE's first annual exhibition competition. Here is a clip of one of his incredible "creatures" at work:
Movement is such an attractive force. We are drawn to rooms with whirling fans, flickering fireplace flames or swinging clock pendulums. There is something undeniably exciting about living in a city that never sleeps (even when we do). And when an artist takes something beautiful in its own right and endows it with movement, we can't help wanting to be near it.
Well done,Theo Jansen!
