There is a complex relationship between Arthur Ganson and his art. His intentions in his motion devices seem to be just for the love of logic behind the intricacies of how it’s done. He states at the end of this video that these devices mean nothing. That whatever he makes, and what that person feels, is like the gear in one of his devices. These essentially meaningless objects could mean something to you, magnifying some emotional aspect in life, and again, you’re on a trip with the creator and yourself. It brings you back around to a shared emotional idea and passion that Ganson has created. In essence, the creator has done something he loves and has a passion for and you’ve experienced those same feelings just by watching the object in motion.
