David C. Roy brings engineering to his artwork with intricate kinetic wooden sculptures. asme.org
The work of David C. Roy is that rarity. In his moving, mesmerizing, kaleidoscopic works, the engineering is the art and the mechanisms serve the beauty of mechanisms. For Roy, the problem of how to make something work beautifully, and how to make something beautiful are the same. “They’re all problems to solve,” he says. “There’s a lot of physical engineering, but the aesthetic problems are also fascinating. They use the same part of my brain.”
