Geek + art = kinetic sculpture

I'm not using the word "geek" here in a perjorative sense. This artist knows his science and applies it to his art (his geekiness nicely demonstrated by his ability to draw perfect sine waves freehand).

I have mixed feelings about "art," so much of which (fashion in particular) seems to be created just for a "WTF" effect. The kinetic sculptures shown here are of course just decorative and nonutilitarian, but they have a scientific underpinning that gives them a certain appeal.

The artist's website is here.
