Robert Hodgin's Magnetic Sculptures

San Francisco-based artist/coder Robert Hodgin of Flight 404 Blog created some of the most mesmerizing sculptures using magnetized balls and cylinders. They're part of the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts (GAFFTA) exhibition.

That has got to take some mad skillz because I can easily envision the whole thing collapsing into a pile of magnetized blob at the slightest touch.

Well, Neatorama, that piece actually was totally destroyed within the first week of the show. Too many people thought it was something to be poked or prodded and it ended up collapsing in on itself. It will live on only in memory and photos. Sigh.
