Springs Sprockets & Pulleys LogoSprings Sprockets & Pulleys: The Mechanical Sculptures of Steve Gerberich, Waterloo Center, Iowa, USA until January 2009. We are great fans of Steve Gerberich and his work, so if you are in Iowa before the end of the year a visit to this exhibition is highly recommended. There is also a great program of workshops and talks.

Press a button or crank a wheel and Steve Gerberich’s sculptures come to life. A flock of decoy geese overhead flap open suitcase wings. A wooden cow with hooves clad in high-top sneakers is milked endlessly by an over-enterprising farmer.

Constructed from old machine parts, kitchen utensils, pieces of furniture, lighting fixtures, medical supplies, toys and carnival figurines, Gerberich’s work offers viewers a unique way to interact with contemporary sculpture, explore the principles of simple mechanical motion or simply ponder the remarkable inventiveness of art.
