Kinetic Sculptures of Alex Sanson

Alex Sanson is an artist living in Malmsburg, Australia. His practice started in the early 90’s with a series of small, playful and toy-like sculptures inspired very much by Alexander Calder’s circus. Since then it has developed to include small scale static and kinetic works, often interactive and activated by touch, and much larger installation art and large scale sculpture for outdoor arts and music festivals.Many of the larger works are also kinetic, generally mechanically driven, though sometimes hand or wind triggered or operated.

Alex’s primary medium is steel, for its strength, versatility, modesty and because it lends itself to so many different techniques and applications.He also uses other metals, timber, plastics, stone, electrical and mechanical components where appropriate.Techniques used include fabrication and machining, welding, a little blacksmithing, woodworking etc.After initial concept development, CAD is used extensively to help fully imagine and plan complex moving 3D structures.
