INSPIRED BY WHITE NOISE and moving objects, Brooklyn-based Juan Fontanive creates a multilevel kinetic sculpture of thin metal rods and linkages, pulleys, and drives. Its shape and structure simultaneously relies on gravity and a mechanical pulley system to power the work. The pulley system generates a choreography of painted shapes that creates a type of moving image, resulting from randomness that changes naturally over time. As with all of Fontanive's kinetic work, we're invited to look and listen.
