Inspired by Calder’s “Circus” of fanciful acrobatic figures you will use gears, wire, pliers and creativity to make your own cranked box acrobat on top. Acrobats can be: a found object, recycled toy or your own trace monotype printed figure or creature that you’ll make in class. Work with professional jeweler, Mary Jo Weis, to help you create a mechanism that cranks and causes movement. Bring a pair of pliers and wire cutters if you already have them.
