Movable Type June 1, 2009

Posted by cbuchanan in Uncategorized.

Several months ago I got the opportunity to meet and interview John Powers, the new sculpture teacher at UAB, for the weekly online edition of UAB Magazine, and I was blown away by his work. He makes big, mechanical, sound-producing, more-animal-than-machine-looking kinetic sculptures out of things like typewriters. Now, finally, here is the video piece that I put together and helped produce. I especially love the little piece of stop-motion animation!

I’m very excited when I meet people like John here in Birmingham. He’s an example of the kind of creative people we need in this city–and hopefully we’re the kind of city that can provide a welcome environment for them. Check out John’s site to see more of his work, including the mesmerizing “Field of Reeds” and his own stop-motion films.
