Johan Rijpma breathes life into ordinary rolls of packing tape by sticking them to the ceiling in various patterns and allowing gravity to take over. He does also lean on some clever video work to add some appeal to the whole thing. This video of the work is fantastic and well worth watching.
By now you may have seen the car commercial, I can’t find it at the moment, showing a magnetic liquid sculpture as the theme. I had to find out who did these and am astounded by the images and video I found. Sachiko Kodama, part artist and part physicist, is the creator behind these fascinating works.
Living somewhere between kinetic sculpture and conceptual robotics, Theo Jansen’s creations are just as visually interesting as they are from a functional perspective. Since I first featured Theo Jansen on Today in Art, there have not been many new photos added. Recently, new photos of Jansen and his creatures have been uploaded. This is exciting and I can’t wait to see where he goes with his work.
