Mesmerizing GIFs of a Mechanical Model of the Solar System

Designer Ken Condal built a mesmerizing orrery (mechanical model of the solar system) with multiple handcrafted gears, wooden and acrylic spheres, and the mechanical engineering help of David Clark. Like a tiny kinetic sculpture, the structure takes motion through a carefully constructed system of gears, which are activated through a winding lever at the bottom.

The multilayered orrery includes…

Spectacular Motorized Flipbooks of Hand-Drawn Birds

Brooklyn-based artist Juan Fontanive creates spectacular motorized flip-books. He manually illustrates and paints each "frame" of his sculptural animations on paper and proceeds to install them in his kinetic boxes that sequentially flip through to simulate motion, just like a film projector except without light.

By salvaging mechanical parts from clocks and…

Spectrum of Colors Revealed Through Lit String Vibrations

British artist, physicist, and all-around science enthusiast Paul Friedlander produces kinetic light sculptures that provide a colorful feast for the eyes. Each piece in his body of work offers a visual medley of light and motion by rapidly rotating a piece of string through white light. The vibrating rope becomes invisible to the human eye, but colors from the light…

Mesmerizing Mechanized Sculptures Reflect Silhouettes

New York-based artist Daniel Rozin has created a series of kinetic sculptures that move according to an algorithm; however, the motorized structures also respond to outside interaction. His interactive installations, titled Angles Mirror and Fan Mirror, each serve as…

Massive Kinetic Racetrack Makes LA Debut

LA, it's almost time. We just got word from LACMA that Chris Burden's epic racetrack sculpture will be make its press debut on Wednesday, January 11, and its public one on January 14. Called Metropolis II, it's a complex, large-scale kinetic structure that's modeled after a fast-faced modern city. Soon we'll all be able to witness 1,100 Hot Wheel-sized cars zip…

Nadine Grenier, a student at ESAD Strasbourg, made this kinetic installation. It is made of 500 clocksworks and every 12 hours you can read: “le temps passe, et chaque fois qu’il y a du temps passe, il y a quelque chose qui s’efface”, which roughly translates in “Time passes, and every time the time passes, there is something that… Continue
