Utah artist Andrew Smith creates incredible kinetic sculptures from stuff found in junk yards and garage sales. His junk collection fills a 30-by-50-foot steel structure, and from the thousands of discarded industrial scraps he assembles mechanical Rube-Goldberesque machines from scratch. Definitely watch the video above to see some of the stuff in motion, there’s also a making of for a piece he built for the Salt Lake City Childrens Museum, and another interview he did in 2006.
