Arthur Ganson’s Machine with 23 Scraps of Paper

One of the highlights of this year’s New Works session at Haystack School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine, was seeing videos of Arthur Ganson’s incredible sculptural machines. This one, titled “Machine with 23 Scraps of Paper,” is cool and elegant. Others are lively, humorous, even touching. They all are strikingly inventive, combining a knowledge of mechanics with theatricality and a bit of dance and mime. You can see several of the videos on YouTube, or link to them through his web site, http://www.arthurganson.com/pages/Sculptures.html
