Kinetic Wave Sculptures

Here is a perfect example of the artist perspective (with the talent and skill to translate his perspective into incredibly beautiful reality). Plus, he's very cute.

From the YouTube description:  Reuben Margolin, a Bay Area visionary and longtime maker, creates totally singular techno-kinetic wave sculptures. Using everything from wood to cardboard to found and salvaged objects, Reubens artwork is diverse, with sculptures ranging from tiny to looming, motorized to hand-cranked. Focusing on natural elements like a discrete water droplet or a powerful ocean eddy, his work is elegant and hypnotic. Also, learn how ocean waves can power our future. Learn more about Reuben at


  1. wow Joyce -- he is fascinating (and cute!) I was surprised to see how adept he was with math too. Very impressive.

    Thanks so much for sharing this find.

  2. He's got a great shop.

    He's clearly deep seeing, intuitive, always asking the "how" question that leads him to making this delightful, often very beautiful sculptures.

    Thank you for sharing this video.
