Summary
Sculptor Kenneth Snelson's creations of gleaming metal tubes and tension wires are familiar sights in public plazas and museum galleries throughout the world. This book provides an overview of Snelson's sculpture and fantasy computer illustrations and animations. It also chronicles the artist's childhood in Pendleton, Oregon, where his love of modeling first expressed itself, his encounters with Buckminster Fuller at Black Mountain College, and his discovery of the "tensegrity" principle which heavily influences his work and his investigations of atomic structure. It also provides an insight into the work of an artist whose work is a unique blend of esthetics and engineering. The book also includes text by art writer and editor Heartney and a DVD.
