SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY- CALDER'S "Mobiles"
(For those interested in following the phishing saga: go to COMPUTERWORLD, check out top stories index, 1) Phishing arrests.... and, 2) Gmail, Yahoo join Hotmail....)
ALEXANDER CALDER (b.1898-1976) was the first to create kinetic moving art in 1931. In the 1960s we knew them as "mobiles" so named by Dadaist artist Marcel Duchamp. It was an appealing invention adding a touch of the Modern ambiance to home furnishers who enjoyed the new Scandinavian furniture styles they were acquiring by designers like Knoll.
GO TO HEYHARRIET'S Shadow Shot Sunday blog to both participate in, and look at
many shadows of passing interest - for great shadows do not stay on the scene
for very long, do they!
PS Go to BryAntics for a complementary rime by my friend living in NSW in Australia, Brenda Bryant. (That is about 5 posts ago - they are 10 hours ahead of us!)
