Engineering Meets Art. The mesmerizing mechanical sculptures by Bob Potts
Mechanical engineering usually has a practical solution as the end goal. However in certain arenas we see not just brilliant function, but beautiful form. Artist Bob Potts has created some of the most mesmerizing kinetic scupltures fusing natural movement with mechanical precision.
"My work is the manifestation of ideas that come to me from the natural world. The grace and form of all living things, and the way they interact, leaves me in awe."
The New York state-based artist manages to capture this reverence for nature by using a pallet of gears, cranks, sliders, levers and chain links, all available to purchase through T.E.A. Transmissions. Potts invests substantial amounts of creativity and energy into his pieces. His sculptures can take up to a year to complete and each work of art is a unique piece.
