Bruce Shapiro and the Art of Motion Control

© Bruce Shapiro

After retiring from his career as a medical doctor, Bruce Shapiro began experimenting with motion control and art in the early 1990s. His projects with machinery and art combine elements of engineering and science to create truly unique works. Shapiro's website contains his explanations of the use of industrial materials and machines in his art providing information on how to create your own motion control projects with scrap materials. His media include everything from eggs, bubbles, ribbons and sand; and his installations, such as Pipe Dream and Ribbon Dancer, at science museums reflect his interests in motion, music and mathematical patterns. To see these and other art experiments created by Shapiro visit The Art of Motion Control.
