Martin Smith Studio — The Spinning Heart Machine — London, UK

The next piece in a series of kinetic objects that celebrate love. As the handle is turned the gears engage to hypnotically flip, spin and rotate the heart.

Martin Smith’s research and work are concerned with people’s perception and interpretation of space. He undertakes quite large architectural commissions that interact with their given space and the viewer through mechanical movement. Alongside this work his practice is also concerned with making kinetic devices that investigate themes of repetition, precision and rules. These utopian objects and spaces are what currently drive his work forward.
