‘billiards’ by andrew smith

american artist andrew smith resides in lehi, utah, a small town outside slat lake city where he crafts unusually complex and colourful kinetic sculptures. smith shared some of his latest pieces with designboom, each of which combine found objects and junk yard scraps. among his recent work is ‘typeroller’ a typewriter outfitted with an elaborate wire system that activates the keys. his other works include more wire and ball track systems run on billiard balls and various moving springs and gizmos. while all smith’s sculptures have functional elements, the unique materials he uses give them a formal quality that is equally captivating.
