This year’s Gift of Art Show includes Kenny Schneider’s unique kinetic installation, “Autobiography”. This large 3D construction is based on an artwork of vehicles the artist once owned, drove, or had as toys. The piece has 166 cutouts, made from etched magnesium, with 6 electric gearbox motors each with a different ratio. Music the artist listened to while fabricating the pieces accompanies the figures as they move from right to left via manufactured conveyor systems.
