How To Make An Abstract Mobile
From Popular Science Monthly, 1954...
1. Cut abstract shapes from cardboard or light-gauge sheet meta
2. For the arms, bend the ends of soft 16-gauge wire into loops and attach the cut-out shapes.
It's all about balance.
Legendary Disney Imagineer Rolly Crump with a few of his kinetic mobiles and sculptures, c.1963. Incredibly cool.
