A glance at Frank Buchwald’s Machine Lights shows a dozen mechanical lamps. A second look reveals a dynamic aspect reminiscent of science fiction elements. A third look discredits the previous and ends in an astounded remark: it’s art.
The Maximilian Büsser & Friends (MB&F) Mechanical Art Devices (M.A.D.) Gallery hosts this set of lamps scrupulously crafted by the German sculptor. Each piece, conveniently named Type 1 to Type 12, is avant-garde metalwork meticulously fashioned and polished to supremacy by untiring hands.
