Kyle's Kinetics: Unique Balancing Kinetic Sculptures
Date Published: 08/15/2017 3:56 PM
We've all seen those cool metal balancing sculptures, usually in people's offices, on their desk. Those are neat, but the balancing sculptures from Kyle's Kinetics are really above and beyond the rest. These unique and hypnotic sculptures move as if they have a life of their own. That's because in a very real sense, they do. They may as well be called living sculptures.

It's easy to be mesmerized as they move and do their thing, as they're basically living out mini lives with their actions. The swinging boy swings, the drinker stumbles, the fisherman battles a fish on his hook, and the couple on a roller coaster seat go round and round slowly. It's as if you're watching a window into another world and it's hard to look away because it's just so mesmerizing!
These sculptures are a joy to watch and very calming. Clearly Kyle pours a lot of love into every creation. He taught himself how to make these because he was always at his desk and wanted something cool to interact with. Now he can't stop making them and his fans can't stop buying them.
I am pretty confident that you don't have anything this graceful and artistic on your desk right now. Me either. I don't think I could buy just one. I would have to have several and collect them. I might even create a little army of swinging kinetic sculptures on my desk, so that whenever people enter my office, they get a little scared.
The spin time on these balancing kinetic sculptures vary, but for the spinning ones they will go for about 5 minutes, whereas the see-saw type sculptures, they will continue going for around 10-15 minutes.
