Clever Kinetic Sculpture

Nice little kinetic ball sorting thing. The video (might take some time to load, it’s coming from China) has enough close up shots that is would not be that tough to duplicate this. I need to find a good supply of that brass wire he uses, looks like it’s brazing rod so it shouldn’t be too hard to locate some. I see a trip to Harbor Freight in my future!

3D Paintings Mimic Holograms

Painting with volume in mind, literally adds a whole new dimension to artwork. Many years ago I thought of doing this with glass film plates but never had the opportunity to try it out. Perhaps I should investigate it once again…

“...they are called “‘spatial paintings,’ which often feature distorted figures, are drawn individually using colored pencil on tinted glass. Only when these pieces are combined on their floor racks do the images create the whole hologram like effect.”
