The Kinetic Sculptures of Julia Nizamutdinova #ArtTuesday
Kinetic sculptures are so lovely. In an odd kind of way, they’re like fantasy novels. Fantasy novels take the moving parts of the fairy tales we loved as children and turn them into something that can appeal to our world as adults. Kinetic sculptures take the moving parts of the mobiles that hung over our cribs and turn them into fine art. Here’s a kinetic sculpture that takes the shape of infinity signs rotating over and over and over again. Here’s more about sculptor Julia Nizamutdinova from COLOSSAL:
“Nizamutdinova tells Colossal that her creation is part of a larger project she calls Cyberflora. “They contain a meditative therapeutic effect from the contemplation of smooth hypnotic movements and the beauty of futuristic forms,” she writes.”
