Connected by Chunky moves and the Kinetic Wave Sculptures by Reuben Margolin

Chunky Move’s Gideon Obarzanek discusses upcoming Dance Massive production Connected at Malthouse; Teaming up with Californian artist, Reuben Margolin, Gideon animates both the body and the machine through physical connection between the dancers and Margolin’s purpose-built, kinetic sculpture.

Reuben Margolin, a visionary and longtime maker, creates totally singular techno-kinetic wave sculptures. Using everything from wood to cardboard to found and salvaged objects, Reubens artwork is diverse, with sculptures ranging from tiny to looming, motorized to hand-cranked. Focusing on natural elements like a discrete water droplet or a powerful ocean eddy, his work is elegant and hypnotic.
