The next speaker in our FSU Art Fall 2015 visiting artist series is Reuben Margolin, a kinetic sculpture based in Berkely, CA.
A love of math and physics propelled him to Harvard, where he changed paths and got a degree in English. He then went on to study traditional painting in Italy and Russia. In 1999 he became obsessed with the movement of a little green caterpillar, and set out to make wave-like sculptures. In 2004 he moved to his current studio in Emeryville and began his work on a series of monumental mechanical mobiles inspired by water that combine the logic of mathematics with the sensuousness of nature. So far he’s completed over twenty suspended installations that undulate in different patterns.
The lecture will be Thursday, October 8th at 7PM in FAB249.
