Mark Galt- Kinetic ArtWhile machines have become essential expressions of our utilitarian and industrial impulses, my design sensibilities find language in the machinery of automata, toys, and amusement. For me, machinery becomes the central metaphor of figurative sculpture, to the extent that machine elements are not only expressive, but voluptuous. My vision in all of this is an apparatus that emerges somewhere between tin toy and laboratory instrument: an attempt to utilize the cold syntax of the machine to create work that expresses organic motion, feeling, and humor. markoapparatus.com
