Uli Kirchler's Pop-Up Wooden Castles

With a flick of his wrist, Uli Kirchler demonstrates one of his kinetic sculptures of castles, hidden within burled wood, popping up from underneath to show a miniature landscape of buildings or tower-like structures. -via Colossal

The Portland, Oregon-based artist originally hails from Italy, and works with unique pieces of wood with textural surfaces and variegated colorations.
The stacked, castle-like towers appear to be built on the rocky hillsides emulated by the knots, burls, and twists in the wood’s natural shape. Kirchler frequently shows his kinetic sculptures at the Portland Saturday Market.
