These fascinating moving sculptures are attention-grabbing with their simple natural materials contrasting against their complex mechanical functionality. David Roy's 'Wood that Works' collection emphasizes his vision of creating kinetic art that function as machines.

These intricate wooden designs are beautiful on their own but paired with the movement created when a hand-cranked gear is turned, Roy's moving sculptures are mesmerizing. The mechanical gear design of each piece is highly interconnected and creates an optical illusion-like visual experience. Each piece has multiple layers that circle around each other to produce various interesting patterns.

Transforming the concept of wall art, Roy pushes the boundaries and increases the level of creativity in form that fellow artists can be inspired by.
