Jean Tinguely‘s Drawing Machines

Various Kinetic Sculptures


Jean Tinguely was an artist working in the 50s and 60s who became famous for his playful kinetic sculptures.  Some of his more interesting works were actually drawing machines witch produced semi random images that were drawn from machines and not people. These drawings were of course abstract and somewhat crude but had a certain rhythm to them because of the machines limited movement ability. When viewing his work people often comment on the juxtaposition of using a machine (witch is often associated with precision) to create these un-precise images.
