Night 18 – Breath of Time DVD by Arthur Ganson

Home » Night 18 – Breath of Time DVD by Arthur Ganson

This evening we are taking the opportunity to get to know Arthur Ganson and his work a little better.

In Arthur’s world, whole machines are constructed from fleeting moments (coming across an abandoned doll in the road or failing to cook an artichoke in a microwave). It is Arthur’s emotional response to these inanimate objects that is later manifested in his machines.

Arthur Ganson is naturally curious, with a deep understanding of engineering. Take a look at the TED talk Arthur Ganson Makes Moving Sculpture for very enjoyable introduction to Arthur’s philosophy and many of his works.

CMT first exhibited with Arthur Ganson at Technorama in Winterthur in 1999, and more recently we have enjoyed working together at phaeno in Wolfsburg, and the Don Harrington Discovery Center in Amarillo, Texas.

‘Machines and The Breath of Time’ is a DVD of a talk that Arthur did for the Long Now Foundation. The DVD is available from
