Kinetic Sculpture is the International Language

Its grown men playing with cardboard boxes that make a little flag do a little dance. Those grown men happen to be monks.  And its so beautiful.

Making a little machine, also known as a toy, is such a basic human instinct.  That's why kids dig 'em.  And when are we a better version of ourselves than when we can think with an open heart, like a kid.

And yes, it did remind me of Rolf.

Here's a link to the exploratorium blog where the video lives.

And here's a link to more Cardboard Automata.

And here's a link to a modern master of the form, Arthur Ganson.
