Irreversibility

Jonathan Schipper's amazing sculptures are made possible via a system of armatures similar to those one might find within the prehistoric animal exhibits in a natural history museum. They differ in that they are mechanically driven and allow for varying positions of the broken pieces. A system of electronic drives, stepper motors, ballscrews, linear shafts and computer software similar to what one might find in a high-tech assembly plant provides the movement.
