A Bit Excited .. Doing a Jig…

After making the kinetic sculpture “Bee Here Now” with a very erratic mechanism.. (the cogs lurch and jam !), I did some research and found the amazing Kinetic Sculptor, Arthur Ganson and after some initial disappointment at finding that he, seemingly, has used up all the ideas in the universe in the department of  ‘comical whimsey, tempered with deep insight’ .. I girded up my artistic loins (!) and on the assumption that mine is a unique and creative intelligence , I studied his ‘you tube’ channel and have been making simulacrums of his Wire Gear making Jigs for the last few days .. Thank you Arthur Ganson and your Unique Insightful and Lovely Intellegence !  and for showing the world your Jigs !
