Jason Allemann of JK Brickworks designed this superb perpetual kinetic sculpture depicting the Greek myth of Sisyphus who was condemned to roll an immense boulder up a hill for eternity. In the video below he explains how the device works in detail, and for the more engineering-minded you can download a building guide and parts list from his website. (via The Automata Blog)
