Manuel Mérida

Manuel Mérida is a Venezuelan artist whose kinetic art explores the infinite forms and visions that can created through the movement of media within a contained space. His works are comprised of various materials, including sand, pigments, coal powder, wood, and metal inside of a square or circular case with a glass cover for viewing. The works are installed on an axis that allows the piece to rotate either by a motor or by the hand of the viewer. Through their mobile nature, his pieces pose opportunities for perpetual evolution.
