Skeleton-like Machines That Seem To Behave Like Natural Organisms

I am an independent artist who creates slowly moving mechanical structures. My machines generate repetitive movements and create smooth shapes and patterns that interfere with spectators’ minds. I am fascinated with science, physics and mathematics.

Geometric patterns and M. C. Escher’s works have always inspired me. It is amazing how one machine with a single movement can create complicated or even chaotic movement patterns. With my works, I want to make the human mind feel relieved and create an almost hypnotic effect.

These are two of my machines – Bussola and Asinas. The skeleton-like structures behave like some kind of natural organism, a living creature slowly moving forward through space.
