This Week’s Theme: Zen
What an amazing table. The marble (middle right) kinetically moves through the sand drawing out different patterns to create a very zen-like meditative instrument. The Sisyphus, is the brainchild of former doctor, Bruce Shapiro, who quit his job to follow his passion: using computer-controlled machines to create art.
About this table:
What music brings to your ears, Sisyphus brings to your eyes. Kinetic art, technology and design merged in stunning meditative beauty.
…the idea behind Sisyphus grew out of a of joking challenge: could he make a robot to rake a Zen garden?
It needs to be seen in action to fully appreciate its meditative qualities:
“All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant’s revolving door.”
~ Albert Camus
