Kinetic Sculptures

This week we used various materials around the studio to put together some kinetic sculptures. It was pretty neat to see something go from scraps of this and that, to an awesome crazy mobile sculpture in the end. Our participants seemed to gravitate towards teaming up with each other on this one.

Check out this artist we found through one of the blogs we follow. Theo Jansen specializes in kinetic sculptures built for the beach. They are basically giant moving robots, powered by the wind. Pretty cool.

Some of the sculptures made by our participants:
