A leg is propelled into space stopping with a jolt, its foot still shaking. From the other side the other leg joins it in the centre. Piece by piece a figure is formed in space and suspended in time. It remains for a brief existance before dispersing again.

The mechanical sculptures of internationally renowned artist Jim Bond demonstrate his ongoing investigation into structural engineering and the organic mechanisms that surround us. His brilliantly constructed environments, apparatuses and figures all serve to further explore the interrelations that occur between balanced, moving and resisting components.
