More new things. Moving things.


Several new pieces to report. The first two are related. I thought about the constant back and forth of most days and decided that no matter what I do, I basically return to the same point every morning. So, the piece “I Don’t Feel Like I am Getting Anywhere” was born. You operate the gear at the bottom of the piece, or the gear at the top. It spins a large gear that has steel bearings resting against it. The bearings drop into little holes and get spun to the top of the piece and then pop out at the top, fall through a series of gates and then land, you guessed it, right back where they started.

So then I thought, maybe management might need to be represented. So they are. The difference is the management one, you push a button and a motor does the work for you. Same result, different method.

And since we are having fun with marbles, bearings, round things… I made a completely manual version as well, with random twists and turns.

I did take video, but I have to edit it down, because it’s a 25MB file as it is. Nobody wants to wait for that download.
