sisyphus_web.jpgTo Kinetica last night for the launch of their exhibition, Magnetic Visions. It was a delight to meet Bruce Shapiro whose latest work, part of the Sisyphus (IV) series, was the centre of attention.

These pieces are mesmerising to watch. A magnet traces complex, computer controlled paths beneath, while above, a steel ball in a field of sand creates dune patterns in its wake. As in the Greek myth from which it draws its name, Sisyphus rolls its “boulder” endlessly, only to witness the cyclic undoing of this labour.

Bruce is giving a talk on the Art of Motion Control this Saturday 25th November at 4 pm at Kinetica.

If you are in the USA check out Bruce’s Ribbon Dancer which has just been installed at the Science Center of Iowa.
