Alex Sanson: ‘Nebulous’ kinetic sculpture commission

Intended to encourage a moment of reflection in an energetic atmosphere, Nebulous was installed in a central position amongst the public at Maitreya Festival. Composed of an intricately patterned, pulsing globe mounted on a latticework tower, the glittering sphere expands with intersecting and meshing patterns into a much larger ellipsoid, before gently contracting again in an effortless cycle.

Cascading Equilibria - kinetic works by Alex Sanson.

New video online of two interactive kinetic sculptures.

Two works featuring vertically stacked delicately balanced elements. Part of a series originally inspired by the human spine, a cascade of linked vertebrae, such a blend of durability and vulnerability, versatility and limitation, motion effected by finding and upsetting equilibriums, centring and then offsetting centre's of gravity.

Kinetic sculpture by Alex Sanson installed at Yering Station Sculpture Competition, 2015

New interactive sculpture at the Yarra Valley winery - Murmuring, to create or reflect on a murmuration, movement of the one, massed becoming a whole greater than the parts. Murmuring seeks the balance between independent and inter-dependent movement and the harmony that may lie there and indeed invites the viewer to create their own pattern or chaos.
