Pe Lang

Pe Lang creates hand-built sculptures that combine mechanized systems with other materials in a delicate balance of kinetic movement. His works are elegant, minimal and endlessly fascinating as they seem to hover between order and chaos. Moving Objects, built for the Exploratorium, is an example of the artist's interest in creating simple systems that generate wildly complex patterns.

Captured inside a large round window, hundreds of black rings travel randomly left and right along more than fifty horizontal strings.
