Kinetic Art on Display in Wolfsburg
At the Phaeno Science Centre in Wolfsburg, Germany, kinetic artists from the United States, Britain and Russia have been invited to display their works alongside the science museum's hands-on education exhibits.
The kinetic art works incorporate cogs, wheels, pulleys and motors into moving sculptures which evoke the viewer's imagination, tell humorous stories and display scientific principles - all at the same time.
In the exhibition called, "Fantastic Machines - Machines Tell Stories" there are huge sprawling, metal works which incorporate found objects like sewing machines and type-writers. There are also small, intricate carved wooden scenes telling funny stories; and then there are curious machines made out of wire and bone, or zinc and magnets.
