Drawing on the Air, a book about the kinetic sculpture of Tim Prentice

Drawing on the Air, book cover

Breaking news! Amazon has just listed that they are taking pre-orders for a new book on the kinetic art of Tim Prentice titled Drawing on the Air: The Kinetic Sculpture of Tim Prentice. For those of you who don't know, Tim Prentice makes large moving sculptures that combine fluidity, engineering, connectedness, flow, air, light, and change.

From the book description:

The kinetic sculptures of Tim Prentice create a novel geometry of air and light. Concentrating on movement rather than object, Prentice harnesses natural elements into his art machines-delicate structures that walk the tightrope between order and chaos, control and serendipity, understated technique and extravagant wonder.Prentice purposely circumscribes the artist's prerogatives, distilling the power of wind and sun into an ever-changing dance of light and shadow. These understated, subtle inventions provide endless distraction, delighting the child in all of us.

Drawing on Air will offer the reader a multifaceted look at Prentice and his artwork in what looks to be a beautiful 9" x 9" hardcover format.

Here's where you can pre-order and/or preview the book Drawing on the Air: The Kinetic Sculpture of Tim Prentice
