Trained as a computer engineer in Caracas, Elias Crispin is a Venezuelan-born, Paris-based artist who specializes in making kinetic installations, with geometry that changes over time. Any one of his sculptures could pass for a scene from Inception.
Although his work looks magical and gravity-defying, his process is actually fairly straightforward. Using a combination of metal and plexiglas, Crispin employs computers and custom-controlled motors to animate different sections of his sculpture using nearly invisible nylon threads.
The result is a series of sculptures that look like vector graphics, but mutate and change in front of your eyes.
