Kinetic sculptureartist Arthur Ganson on communicating through art, taking feedback, and intentionality
I first came across Arthur’s work almost two decades ago when I was a student in Boston. I don’t know what led me to that gallery on that day, but I do know that the work I saw has remained vivid in my memory ever since.
Arthur manages to combine so many elements that I find deeply satisfying; interactivity, narrative, humour, ingenuity and sometimes even found objects. But he takes it a step further – each piece lends itself to layers of contemplation, hinting at philosophical or existential questions about human existence; a search for meaning, the joy of the physical, and endless struggle.
