Jean Tinguely

8 02 2013

30 years or more ago I ran into some mechanical sculptures at the Ontario Science Building in Toronto. They were like something out of some fanciful industrial Eden. Creatures made out of the flotsam of the Industrial Revolution. They were a joy to look at. Jean Tinguely’s work is in that same niche. Photographs do not do these pieces justice. They are a very three dimensional experience. And the fun of it is they have almost no meaning. They exist unto themselves.
