WILL IT WORK?
A Laboratory of Kinetic Sculpture
The Hokin Project Gallery has been turned into a laboratory of sorts, exposing the intricate processes behind the creation of motion. Inspired by the imaginative machines of the current Glass Curtain Gallery exhibition, Rube Goldberg’s Ghost, this installation showcases Columbia College student artists as they generate kinetic sculpture.
WILL IT WORK? places particular emphasis on process-based materials – sketches, blueprints, plans, and models – along with the objects themselves. Here you can follow the kinetic artists as their projects unfold at the expansive workbench, add your own work to the interactive Rube Goldberg-esque Exquisite Corpse, and investigate the world of kinetic structures. Many of the works featured are in a constant state of progress, as the projects develop and evolve from the artists’ initial ideas. Once an end is within reach, the ultimate question still stands: Will it work?
