This was probably the coolest thing I saw at the show. Bruce really is an innovator in art of motion.

Bruce has lots of other interesting project you can check out at his website, taomc.com.

Here’s an excerpt from his website about his work:

Despite the universal use of motion control in industrial settings, its use by artists has been hampered by the enormous cost of commercial equipment. Therefore, the only means for artists to explore this new medium is to build their own equipment from scrapped components of industrial machines. I have spent the past 15 years pursuing this goal. In so doing, I find myself on an unpredictable path winding through three landscapes: science, art, and education.
