Andrew Smith: Kinetic Sculpture

November 30, 2010

Christopher Jobson

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.

Metropolis II: What to do with 1,200 Hot Wheels

November 26, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Metropolis II is a kinetic art installation by Chris Burden featuring 1,200 Hot Wheels. It includes 1,200 custom-designed cars and 18 lanes; 13 toy trains and tracks; and, dotting the landscape, buildings made of wood block, tiles, Legos and Lincoln Logs. Burden estimates that every hour about 100,000 cars circulate the system. Soon to be on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, or as my friend Gregg will refer to it, “Mecca”.
