poetry in motion

Just because it’s so daggum, mind-bendingly pretty:

It’s a kinetic sculpture by artist Derek Hugger, who says, “I have a passion for mechanisms and an insatiable urge to solve mechanical puzzles. I like to sweat the details.”

Reminds me of an old-fashioned clock, somehow, only the inner parts are the feature attraction. And it’s a hummingbird, hovering.

Tripping the art fantastic, wouldn’t you agree?

    Wow! This is poetry and art in motion like I have never seen. Simply beautiful and calming to watch.

    This kinetic sculpture is extremely fascinating. I would enjoy watching his sculptures move for hours. My favorite kinetic sculpture of his would have to be the Merlot design. The Merlot sculpture is so mesmerizing. I ended up watching the video a couple of times before I could finally pull myself away. What an outstanding talent this man has.
