The picture above, on the top left of the post is titled, Plague Parade. I have a good story behind this. I first saw it on the 27th of June when it was awarded a 'Daily Deviation' on deviantart.com. My jaw dropped. I loved it. I was beautiful beautiful traveling death. Anyway, I didn't really file away Kuksi's name, and didn't investigate him futher, so my knowledge of his work was limited to this one piece.
When I went to Gallery 5 on the 5th of October I saw a kinetic sculpture. (the very first picture at top) I was like, 'hey, I feel like I've seen work like this before.' I took a picture.
When I got home I researched Kuksi and voila, he was the artist that made the Plague Parade.
I blinked a few time. I was in complete awe that I'd gotten to see one of his peices in person.
I got to see a Kris Kuksi in person and I didn't even know that I wanted to at the time.
