May 2015 Here is a segment on the Morris Museum that was broadcast by WMBC-TV in the New York City & northern New Jersey area last weekend. The first two-thirds of the video is on the mechanical music instruments, and the rest is about the automata. Not only do we get to see and hear some of these wonderful machines, but we also get some valuable commentary from the both the Conservator and Curators of the collection. Ever wonder why so many of the old automata feature monkeys dressed up in fancy cloths? Watch the video to find out why!

This past week has been as intense as it gets for a lot of people in Paris. I happened to be visiting for a couple week. We were all affected one way or another. Horrible stories after horribles stories were shared, friends lost loved ones, were wounded, attacked while doing nothing more than just enjoying life. Shock, disgust, sadness came first.

The Sun Altered Cube: A solar powered kinetic installation by Michael Jantzen The painted steel Sun Altered Cube is a large solar powered kinetic art installation designed by Michael Jantzen to be placed into a public park. An array of solar cells is mounted on the top of the cube. These solar cells power two electric motors that are connected to two corners of the cube. The corners have been separated from the rest of the cube so they can be slowly rotated in and out of phase, by the solar powered electric motors.
Blog ! Hervé Tullet « Another infectiously joyful romp from the panjandrum of playful pointillism. A blue dot, a red dot, and a yellow dot, each associated with an elemental sound—"Oh," "Ah," and "Waahoo" respectively—multiply, change size (volume) and position, hold conversations, bounce ("A little wilder now?"), combine, sing together, and at last invent "a whole new language" with successive page turns and taps. Offering terse directions along with plenty of praise and encouragement as he goes, Tullet presents not only invitations to whisper and shout on cue, but challenges to physical and vocal dexterity alike, opportunities to act out and then practice dialing it down, even elemental musical instruction. At 64 pages, there's a lot going on, but his command of rhythm and pacing along with his sheer inventiveness will keep readers totally engaged.

This is the place to find out! A Basket That's a Wiggling Work of Kinetic Art [Video] The incredible thing about Bidum is that it's a basket, and it swings, shimmies, and shakes like some sort of cross between a Slinky and a giant Koosh Ball. The more incredible thing is that it's a basket, and we're actually excited about it. Once you see the videos, though, you'll get what all the fuss is about. Watch: Industrial designer Laetitia Florin produced Bidum for her graduate thesis at the École Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne, in Switzerland. She got it to bounce by sheathing cotton over thin spring-steel strips.
