then : now :: suspended

First off we have a mobile by Alexander Calder (1898 - 1976)...a few random facts about Calder...he studied mechanical engineering, crafted toys, and invented the mobile as we know it. He also coined the term 'stabile' for his abstract sculptures that were not hanging or kinetic.

His 'now' counterpart is photographer Ben Innes. These photos are from a "series focusing on disused electronics, as well as flora and fauna." I am especially obsessed with his separated artichoke (my bday food of choice!).

Calder once wrote, "Nothing at all of this is fixed." i like that.

although my bday artichoke is kinda a set deal!
