Bálint Bolygó


Bálint Bolygó’s creates mechanisms animated by natural universal forces and the unpredictability of the human touch, resulting in an independent act of creation.

His work involves a process of invention, science and engineering. Steel weights, wires, motors and pulleys are transformed into mechanisms animated by natural universal forces. In constructing these kinetic devices the artist is creatively challenged to investigate how an underlying scientific structure or process can change or shape an object. The practical solutions to physical problems concerned with friction, weight, tension, and compression are all elements that give idiosyncratic aesthetic to his kinetic devices. Bolygó is currently showing in Mind over Matter at Phoenix, Exeter following a solo show In Budapest in late 2009.
