My husband, Aaron, has been working hard at making an exciting new project. “Wild Gears” is a laser cut spirograph set that he designed himself, and it’s awesome. He’s been testing prototypes and experimenting with art made with the circles and gears.
I wanted to share some of it with you, because it’s beautiful! Our apartment is rapidly becoming filled with this stuff though, so uh, be careful, it’s addictive.
Anyway, here’s some art from Wild Gears! And a link to the Kickstarter page, in case you want in on it! Also… a link to the video in case you just want to watch that!
The actual clear acrylic, laser cut gears! You’re seeing right- pentagonal, square, and triangular gears. He put a of work into getting these perfect, and they’re amazing.
Gears within gears! Everything works with everything else. He’s brilliant.
Weird, right? He’s developed some new technology that allows for the creation of some pretty wonky designs.
And when he uses colour- ah my eyes! Haha, it’s a fine line between mathematical beauty and crying tears of geometry.
SHUT THE FRONT DOOR ARE THOSE PARALLEL LINES
You’re darn tootin’ right they are. This is perhaps the most amazing thing he’s developed- the ability to create parallel lines with a spirograph. It makes for some really interesting pieces.
Another one with parallel lines.
