As a pioneer in naturalistic forms and figures that vividly express emotion, Auguste Rodin is often called the father of modern sculpture. His work in the 19th and early 20th century broke with artistic conventions and inspired modernism, leading to a new period of avant-garde abstraction.
Among the first artists to push abstract sculpture into the mainstream were Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. They helped define the movement of Cubism, which focused on deconstructing the world abstractly.
Later in the 20th century, the artistic movements of Italian Futurism, Dadaism, Neo-Dadaism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism and minimalism all contributed to the advancement of new and more abstract sculpture designs. Italian Futurism, for example, celebrated movement, dynamics and technology in abstract sculpture. These movements passed down ideas that continue to inform abstract sculpture today.

An object balances when its weight is evenly distributed around its base of support (whatever is holding it up). This depends on how much weight is on each side of the support, but also on how far away the weight is from the support. Your ruler weighs about the same all the way across, so it balanced when you put your finger (the base of support) right in the middle. Adding the penny made it heavier on one side, so you probably had to move your finger closer to the penny, leaving more of the ruler on the other side to balance the weight. Changing where you put the penny will change how far you have to move your finger to make it balance. Your kinetic sculpture works the same way: adding objects to one side, or moving them farther from the support, changes how the sculpture balances.
No Sculpture may carry on board any potentially dangerous items without receiving permission from the Race Director before the race begins. Your sculpture will be travelling through crowds of fans, who must not be harmed. (The best ways to locate the Race Director to discuss these matters are at volunteer meetings, or via telephone or email.)
Sculptures honked upon must yield right-of-way and pull aside at the first opportunity to allow faster moving sculptures to pass.Passing pilots should gesture or display an obligatory sign of gratitude.
At least one adult Pilot (over the age of 18 and having signed a Waiver of All Responsibility)must be on board the Sculpture or part of the official Pit Crew accompanying the sculpture while traveling the course.
For the pilots on a sculpture to receive ACE status, no relief pilots will beallowed under any circumstances during timed competition. Pilots must staywith their Sculpture and are not allowed to ride on Pit Crew vehicle whileSculpture is progressing the course. In other words, you may not rotatepilots during the race. (penalty: loss of ACE status and 1-hour penalty)

Chris Burden's Metropolis II is an intense kinetic sculpture, modeled after a fast paced, frenetic modern city. Steel beams form an eclectic grid interwoven with an elaborate system of 18 roadways, including one six lane freeway, and HO scale train tracks. Miniature cars speed through the city at 240 scale miles per hour; every hour, the equivalent of approximately 100,000 cars circulate through the dense network of buildings. According to Burden, "The noise, the continuous flow of the trains, and the speeding toy cars produce in the viewer the stress of living in a dynamic, active and bustling 21st century city."

Visually imposing, the spiral encases 80 refurbished phones, acting as windows into the circular economy, their displays synched1 to create one big continuous screen. The continuous kinetic movement of the piece is paired to a bespoke soundscape2, turning these devices from phones, into tools of expression, to denote the concept of circulation. From having had at least one life, these devices come together to form a kinetic sculpture, before they are then refurbished and circulated back into use. 781b155fdc
