What if the materials I 'found' differ from the materials they found?

I greatly enjoy kinetic sculpture, but I'm sorry to say I didn't find this piece particularly inspired. This is my favorite kinetic sculpture.

Maybe it's just me, but there are no instructions provided anywhere, as far as I can tell, even at the artist's site (which repeatedly crashed in Firefox 2.0.0.4).

Still, it's a beautiful piece and nice video, so thanks for sharing.

Doh, found your second DIY link, staring right at me from your post.

Then it won't be a squid. But do post the video of whatever you end up with, please.

Oooh, that makes a second project for when I figure out light welding.

love the eyes.
and the theme.
while I can work with electrical conduit, I am far below the skill level of achieving this, how-to or no.
thanks!
