1. In order to show motion better, I chose to use videos. Some of them are not that short, but if you watch a bit of each, you will get a clear idea of what we are talking about. Let´s go to the first artist: Tamara Kvesitadze. In the first video you can appreciate a few other unique pieces from this artist. Her most famous sculpture is Ali and Nino (2nd video). It represents the story of two lovers. It is a tragic love affair, between a young Muslim Azerbaijani man and a Christian Georgian princess, during WWI. Their love was torn apart by culture, religion, and war, as many others in real life even now. At 7pm the figures begin changing positions, moving towards one another until they meet in a brief kiss, before passing through and continuing on their path. It is located in Batumi, Georgia. Are there any kinetic sculptures that represent a story in your town?
2. Can you mention any other kinetic sculptures that represent a story like Ali and Nino?
3. Korean artist U-Ram Choe lives in Seoul where he creates highly ornate kinetic sculptures that mimic forms and motions found in nature. Choe uses various metals, motors, gears, and custom CPU boards to control the precise motions of each sculpture that are at times perfectly synchronized and other times completely random. With names like "Unicus – cavum ad initium" and "Arbor Deus Pennatus" it is clear the artist treats each new work like a brand new species. The artworks are so complex each "organism" is shipped with a manual to show collectors and galleries how to maintain and fix various components. Eventually he raids old artworks for parts and uses them to build new ones. Have you seen any of his work before?
4. John Edmark is a 3-D designer. These masterful illusions are the result of a marriage between art and mathematics. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. John Edmark is an inventor, designer, artist and design teacher at Stanford University. Do you like these examples of 3D sculptures?
