John Edmark is no stranger to Art of Play. His insanely popular Helicone has been a best seller for us since we added it to our catalog last year, not to mention it's super fun to play with. In addition to inventing ingenious kinetic amusements, Edmark's animated sculptures are some of the most magical things we've ever seen. At first glance, you might even question if what you're seeing is real or fake, and yet you'll be mesmerized beyond belief.
In a recent interview with Colossal, Edmark talks about his latest video showcasing a series of "Blooms", as he calls them, sharing his inspiration for these animated sculptures and the secret to their bewildering effect.
