sculptural robotics, cool machines and kinetic sculptures
July 20, 2003 8:52 AM   Subscribe

Sculptural Robotics are whimsical "artificial lifeforms and other curious artifacts," mostly created from hard drive components, solar engines, and brass. Artist Dan Roe also links to Arthur Ganson's Machines, a portfolio of wonderful mechanical creations. Ganson in turn links to Tim Prentice's awesome Kinetic Sculptures - all are fun examples of when technology, machines, and art collide.

those kinetic sculptures in the last link are especially great.

Wow. Arthur Ganson's machine with wishbone is fantastic (and a little disturbing, what with the spindly arms of a robotic puppeteer animating a bone).

Cool stuff. The re-cycled hard drive parts into moving sculture is very cool.

Yeah, props mjjv on the Tim Prentice link, those are just hypnotizing. I wish I had a screensaver that would replicate the undulating motions of the wire cat or some of the others. Very cool indeed.

Ooo-ooo-ooooo! I especially like Arthur Ganson's machines. Cat whiskers--wonderful. And how'd he get the hand to right 'Faster' in the one called Faster? Great stuff.
