Jean Tinguely

Jean Tinguely spent countless childhood hours in the Swiss forest creating a story that would become a model for his future artwork. He often shared his story of this secret creation when describing the inspiration for his artwork. Several elements from Tinguely’s story are found throughout his future work, including the use of chance and movement, various sounds and speeds, water, the surrounding environment, the temporary life expectancy of the artwork, the use of scrap material for construction, and concern with the viewer’s interactive response with the playful piece.
