Bolygó’s artistic practice explores time based sculpture and installation, combining artistic imagination, invention, science, mechanics, and engineering to create processes that reveal natural phenomena. Bolygó makes kinetic sculpture that over time create different types of images – drawings, paintings, etchings, films, light projections etc. The machines are sculptural objects that act out an artistic activity. The idiosyncratic nature of the pieces recall early scientific instrumentation and perhaps allude to a time of great spectacle, when the division between Art and Science was ambiguous and blurred.
