Arthur Ganson spoke for over an hour on January 14th 2015 at the Bartlett School of Architecture. He started his talk reflecting on his childhood and his fascination with movement. The talk paralleled the TED talk he did but went into much more detail. So sit back with some popcorn and pour yourself a drink.
Arthur Ganson began making kinetic sculpture in 1977. Since receiving a
BFA degree at the University of New Hampshire in 1978, his work has been
exhibited in numerous galleries and museums in both the United States and
Europe. He has held residencies at a number of institutions including the
Exploratorium in San Francisco and the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology in Cambridge, where he has maintained an ongoing exhibition
of his sculpture since 1995.
His work has been featured in numerous media outlets, including Smithsonian
Magazine, The New York Times and NOVA ScienceNOW. In 2003 his work was featured on the cartoon series 'Arthur' where Ganson himself appeared as an animated bear. He has been a guest speaker at many Universities and conferences throughout the United States, including the TED Conference in Monterey in 2004 and the Long Now Foundation in San Francisco in 2010.
