I was thrilled when I received an email from Andrew Smith introducing me to his mind blowing artwork! Old and abandoned items such as gears, wires, springs, junk yard scraps and all sort of mechanical parts & equipment are ritually collected by the artist and used to assemble imaginative and captivating kinetic sculptures.

As the artist notes: “Rather than getting melted down and recycled or going to a landfill, the junk becomes new, gets a new purpose, a new life”.

Take a look at a very interesting short film by the Utah Valley University, presenting the work and the artist himself:
Also worth mentioning is that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Museum in Alexandria, Virginia showcased Andrew Smith’s “Driving Force” in an exhibition entitled “Art of Invention: Invention of Art”.

The only sure thing about Smith’s work is that it wakes your inner child. You can feel the positive energy and pureness of his creations – reflecting the natural instinct of curiosity. How many of us have destroyed our toys in order to see what they’re made of?

Pure inspiration!
