5,000 Moving Parts

I’m excited to learn that in November the MIT Museum in Cambridge, MA will be hosting a new exhibit on kinetic art . The museum has had a long affiliation with the kinetic artist Arthur Ganson who’s body of work could only be described as bridging the gap between Rube Goldberg and 19th century automatons. His overly complicated and delicate machinery meticulously leads to puppeteering everyday objects. This filtering brings focus to the sheer beauty of movement, whether it’s an exploding chair or a scrap of paper flying through space. Three other artists will join Ganson in what should be a fascinating exhibit of new work. The exhibit entitled 5,000 Moving Parts opens November 21st.
