We are extremely grateful for the support and trust our Kickstarter backers have given us. We’re feverishly finishing development and preparing to manufacture Sisyphus tables. When we know the final retail pricing we will begin offering pre-orders. Please join our mailing list for updates. For more details on the tables please visit our Kickstarter page.

 
 

Sisyphus - The Kinetic Art Table, our Kickstarter campaign, ran for 30 days in September and October, 2016. Since then Bruce has been writing (approximately) monthly updates to let our backers know what we are doing.

Bruce's Kickstarter updates

We will take pre-orders for Sisyphus tables soon, to be produced and shipped as soon as our Kickstarter orders are fulfilled. We are aiming for a mid 2018 date for these pre-orders.

In Greek mythology, Sisyphus was condemned to roll a boulder up a mountain for all eternity. In my art, Sisyphus is a kinetic sculpture that rolls a ball through sand, forever creating and erasing beautiful patterns. Watching Sisyphus evokes a meditative feeling. 

I have been creating Sisyphus sculptures for nearly 20 years, and have 3-meter diameter permanent installations in Switzerland, Germany and Australia. Over time I have come to view Sisyphus as more than a kinetic art piece: it is an instrument. As a musical instrument plays songs, Sisyphus plays paths. My goal is to get Sisyphus into people's homes for them to enjoy as both furniture and art, but also, to inspire a community of composers to write "music" for it.
