Sisyphus – The Kinetic Art Table – A Special Event at Wild Hearts Gallery
July 20 - July 21
What music brings to your ears, Sisyphus brings to your eyes.
Created by artist Bruce Shapiro and brought to the gallery by Sisyphus collaborator and Chief of Operations Micah Roth, the Sisyphus is a museum-quality kinetic art sculpture for your home displayed in a functional tempered glass topped table. The Wi-Fi-connected two-motor robot magnetically pulls a steel ball through a field of sand – creating beautiful, intricate, and endlessly changing patterns.
Each of the sand ‘paths’ the Sisyphus creates is hand crafted, and offered through customizable tables in dynamic finishes and various sizes.
“I met Bruce, the Artist, 6 years ago while prototyping a 10 foot diameter Sisyphus for a museum in Canberra, Australia. When Bruce shared his dream of bringing Sisyphus to the consumer market, we started developing these tables together. The 1.9 million dollars, we raised on Kickstarter, helped to make Sisyphus Industries what it is today.
Placitas is my home and I’m incredibly proud to share this dream with the people and place that had so much influence on my life.” – Micah Roth
