"it has a lot to do with happiness"

von sent this: arthur ganson: kinetic sculptures. not, at the beginning, compelling, but by the end, hypnotic.

was also thinking about scarry, that there is an added delicious edge in all this, because the effect of beauty, as we know, is always to halt, to cause motion to cease, this being deliberate, overelaborated motion that causes the cessation of motion.

i love the chair, which also makes me think of pratchett's lady time.

you can see a few more here here, and also of course at arthur ganson's own website.
