Len Lye

We made it to the Len Lye exhibition at ACMI.
We intended to have a quick look - but ended up spending 2 hours or so absorbed in looking at the fantastic work.
His kinetic sculptures are inspiring engineering feats. The ones in the exhibition were evokative and powerful. This item was metal spokes arranged on a sloping see sawing piece of wood, and it was quite mesmerising.

And his films made from direct painting were wonderful.
Have a look at Colour Box.
