James Nolan Gandy uses his metalworking knowledge to create drawing machines that produce finely tuned, yet expressive works. The machines are purely mechanical, yet their result is something that appears almost digital, as if the drawn orbs and ellipses were designed in a computer program rather than executed by an analog structure. To create multi-color works Gandy must pause the machine to switch out each color, furthering the collaboration between the built artistic object and his own aesthetic desires. You can watch his mesmerizing machines in action in the videos below, and view more of his finished work on his website and Instagram.
