Those Sisyphus tables look so cool! I had forgotten about those.
I have a newly found appreciation for kinetic art since I more or less stole a kinetic metal sculpture by one Clayton Whitehouse by spotting it in an online auction lot, sitting among other stuff behind a basement bar, when apparently no one else did.
Imagine waiting to bid at the last minute on a lot sitting at your last bid of $10, wondering how high to go ($500? More? It's worth something like two grand!) and watching in disbelief as the auction closes with NO ONE ELSE BIDDING! Whoo-hoo! doesn't begin to describe it!
I could even claim that the rest of the lot was worth the ten bucks, so the sculpture was free!
The auction company really dropped the ball on this thing. It should have been a highlighted item, but sitting on a busy, mirrored bar shelf effectively hid it, except from me! (The old lady whose house it was must not have been around to point it out, either.)
Here's the main pic for the lot:
And the solo pic, also from the auction website:
Still hard to see how cool it is, right?
After I got it home:
