    Kinetic Sand Drawing Tables by Bruce Shapiro

    Kinetic Sand Drawing Tables by Bruce Shapiro


    Artist Bruce Shapiro has transformed the tools that create sculpture into the sculpture itself, using CNC machines to produce tables that trace beautiful patterns in thin layers of sand. This kinetic sand drawing machines in a form of tables trace beautiful patterns in thin layers of sand by a movement of a metal ball. He named this project Sisyphus, alluding to infinity of motion and struggles of the hero from the Greek myth, just like a ball seems to roll endlessly creating beautiful patterns in the sand under the surface of a coffee table.
    "Over time I have come to view Sisyphus as more than a kinetic art piece: it is an instrument. As a musical instrument plays songs, Sisyphus plays paths. My goal with this Kickstarter is to get Sisyphus into people’s homes for them to enjoy as both furniture and art, but also, to inspire a community of composers to write ‘music’ for it," said Shapiro about his kinetic sand drawing machines in a form of tables and ongoing Kickstarter campaign.
