Kinetic Sculpture defies all boundries

The south's largest metro now houses one of the craziest kinetic sculptures ever.  The video below doesn't do it justice. Wired just released the last of it's four part series on how it was created.  After watching it, I got a better sense of how much work actually went into it.

I tried for a good ten minutes to think of something witty to say.  I even used the toilet.  I do my best thinking there.  And... I got nothing.

Wired said this though : "The atrium in the Dallas Hilton Anatole hotel is Texas-big, lofting more than 150 feet in the air. Owner Harlan Crow — legendary real estate investor and eccentric collector of ego-size dead-dictator statues – needed to fill it.

What happened next was perhaps the most ambitious kinetic sculpture ever commissioned, the Nebula.

Conceived and designed by Berkeley, California, artist Reuben Margolin, and built and installed by Mark Sabatino’s Gizmo Art Production in San Francisco, the sculpture seems to swim, as a motor on the ceiling rotates a massive truss holding 445 stainless steel cables connected to 15,000 reflectors, shimmering like jewels.

Margolin, whose celebrated kinetic works include the “magic wave,” the “pentagonal wave“ and many others, says the Nebula is by far his most difficult piece to date."

Skull Sculptures by Dimitri Tsykalov

You know how some people just have too much time on their hands.  This might be one of those guys.  I give you Russian sculptor Dimitri Tsykalov and his fruit and vegetable sculptures of skulls.  I gotta admit.  It is intriguing.

I wish he would do some bananas in pajamas.

Tiny stuff is great.  It makes me feel like a giant.  If only junk mail came this small.
