Sculptor Partners with Wind to Galvanize Metallic Bits into Soft Dance

It aims to alter one’s experience of time and space when witnessed

Creation of kinetic sculptures
This is artistry which goes way beyond simple academic skill. Creation of kinetic sculptures assumes understanding the laws of physics and mechanics. This is why Anthony Howe is one special kind of sculptor. A bit of a mechanical engineer, Anthony was born in Salt Lake City and completed his education at the Cornell University.

Anthony started painting watercolors and lived in Boston, but a sense of unease made him move to Manhattan where he first discovered metal as his new material to love and create.

This is his lovely statement about the small metallic pieces that move in the wind and create kinetic shapes:
“… It aims to alter one’s experience of time and space when witnessed. It also needs to weather winds of 90 mph and still move in a one mile per hour breeze and do so for hundreds of years.”

Enjoy in the timeless movement by watching the video of his sculpture named Oingo below.
