"From the Ted Talk by Arthur Ganson: Moving sculpture"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, when I went to college, I found myself making fairly complicated, fragile mnaecihs. And this really came about from having many different kinds of interests. When I was in high school, I loved to program ctomueprs, so I sort of liked the logical flow of events. I was also very interested in perhaps going into surgery and becoming a surgeon, because it manet working with my hands in a very focused, intense way. So, I srtated taking art courses, and I found a way to make sculpture that brought together my love for being very precise with my hands, with coming up with different kinds of logical fwlos of energy through a sytesm. And also, working with wire — everything that I did was both a vsauil and a mechanical engineering decision at the same time. So, I was able to sort of exercise all of that.

Original Text

Now, when I went to college, I found myself making fairly complicated, fragile machines. And this really came about from having many different kinds of interests. When I was in high school, I loved to program computers, so I sort of liked the logical flow of events. I was also very interested in perhaps going into surgery and becoming a surgeon, because it meant working with my hands in a very focused, intense way. So, I started taking art courses, and I found a way to make sculpture that brought together my love for being very precise with my hands, with coming up with different kinds of logical flows of energy through a system. And also, working with wire — everything that I did was both a visual and a mechanical engineering decision at the same time. So, I was able to sort of exercise all of that.
