These are just terrific sculptures. I read about Ann Smith in Wired, and I think her sculptures made from…junk?…old machines?…eBay purchases?…I don’t really know are an exercise in patience and precision. It seems like the parts she chose are perfectly crafted for the desired effect. I can see how some people would not think of this as “art” but the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail makes it art in my book.
