Kinetic Sculptures

Environmental & Science Education, STEM, Art & Environment

Ed Hessler

With some background in physics (it is not clear how much but enough), self taught artist David C. Roy has been building kinetic sculptures for some four decades. In this video (10m 44s) he describes them from conception to design to their construction to their testing to their power source, even how they are named and how he got started.

They will amaze you if you've not seen them before and all are of wood construction and in addition they are beautiful. The labor is not only one of love but of getting things exactly right.  Plenty of "oohs" and "ahs" throughout. The music is not a detractor either.
