Kinetic sculpture is the representation of eternal motion and everlasting returns. It is a myth of cyclical nature of time. Unlike clockwork, which reminds of the fleeting nature of time and mortality, kinetic sculpture stimulates an inner sense of eternity. Its circular movement induces a meditative and philosophical state. The recession of elements back and forth into space creates a unique spectacle.
A mechanism is almost always a metaphor for the living. It creates an algorithm, a certain rule of action, an idea or a form of a living thing. My mechanical animals and birds are metaphorical, mythological, allegorical beings as well as open machines that are more or less understandable in their structure and technicalities.
If there is a supply of eternity and the universe is a mechanism, then there are no secrets apart from the technical ones. Kinetic sculpture is a point of view through which the world is open and clear, and therefore accessible to the human mind.
Unique interior design solutions
As science and art crossed paths, (philosophy and mechanics, sculpture and design) innovative sculpture became a demanded element of interior design. In interior decoration of offices, hotels, restaurants, or cafes such unique element can become the center of the whole interior solution or a separate composition playing along the theme and style of the space.
A moving sculpture is an unexpected object of interior design highlighting or mixing up the modern or vintage styles. Unlike the typical and easily-accessible interior accessories, these sculptures brake the stereotypical perception of space and attract immediate attention and curiosity. This characteristic makes these sculptures not only successful interior decor but also remarkable gifts.
The trend of unique gifts will never disappear. Expensive, exclusive gifts that were handpicked with taste and given with consideration always leave a life-long impression on the recipient. A handmade kinetic sculpture is a gift that will highlight and enhance the status of a superintendent and will improve interior design. VIP-gifts can be custom made out of any type of wood, metal, and/or leather in various combinations.
