Reuben Margolin is a San Francisco Bay Area artist who creates amazingly complected yet elegant sculptures. Inspired from nature and built using found objects, simple pulleys and motors, he is truly creating inspired stuff. And listening to him talk about his work is just as inspiring.

The video is a Make Magazine profile and well worth watching. He even makes a stop by Urban Ore, one of the greatest places on the planet as far as I am concerned. He is truly creating inspired stuff and I really enjoy hearing him talk about his work.

There are more videos over at his site too.

Art-O-MatWhat do you do with those old cigarette vending machines? Decorate them all ‘Fantastico’, cram ’em full of cheap art, spread them out across the country and create an army of Art-o-Mats!

These things have been around for ten years already. There are 82 active machines featuring the works of over 400 artists. Put in your money, pull the lever and you are rewarded with a one-of-a-kind original art piece. How cool is that? Very cool, I say. It looks like there is one up in Eugene so I may have to drop in and check it out next time I am there.

It’s a quilt. It’s a map. It’s a map-quilt. It is awesome. It is by Leah Evans and she has a bunch more, too.
