Arthur Ganson machines and the breath of time ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Arthur Ganson uses simple, plain materials to build witty mechanical art. Born in Hartford, Conneticut in 1955, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of New Hampshire (1978), Ganson has been creating mechanical sculpture for over thirty years. Ganson's creations are kinetic: that is, they move, either by motor or with the help of a viewer, who pushed a bar or turns a crank to bring the piece to life. Ganson has been an artist-in-residence at MIT and has shown his work at art and science museums around the world in over 20 solo exhibitions and countless shared exhibitions
