Alexander Calder–Mobiles!


Alexander Calder is one of the most famous mobile-makers I know of. He revolutionized the art form with his use of fluid, natural shapes. The thing about mobiles is that they are not a one-time viewing experience: they are always moving, changing their form, and creating a new (and yet the same) piece of art. (At least that’s how they’re supposed to work. The one at the Carnegie International didn’t really move….)
