The south's largest metro now houses one of the craziest kinetic sculptures ever. The video below doesn't do it justice. Wired just released the last of it's four part series on how it was created. After watching it, I got a better sense of how much work actually went into it.

I tried for a good ten minutes to think of something witty to say. I even used the toilet. I do my best thinking there. And... I got nothing.

What happened next was perhaps the most ambitious kinetic sculpture ever commissioned, the Nebula.
Conceived and designed by Berkeley, California, artist Reuben Margolin, and built and installed by Mark Sabatino’s Gizmo Art Production in San Francisco, the sculpture seems to swim, as a motor on the ceiling rotates a massive truss holding 445 stainless steel cables connected to 15,000 reflectors, shimmering like jewels.

I wish he would do some bananas in pajamas.
