Artist and mathematician John Edmark creates interactive kinetic sculptures based on mathematic patterns and equations. By combining simple calculations with modern techniques for precise laser cutting, he manages to make interactive works of art that are both elegant and complex at the same time. Here are a few of our favorite pieces from his collection. You have to see them in motion to truly appreciate his genius.
John says, “Much of my work celebrates the patterns underlying space and growth. Through kinetic sculptures and transformable objects, I strive to give viewers access to the surprising structures hidden within apparently amorphous space. While art is often a vehicle for fantasy, my work is an invitation to plunge deeper into our own world and discover just how astonishing it can be.”
