the inventor of the mobile (hanging art piece of many balanced parts) Alexander Calder

from http://voiture-jaune.tumblr.com/



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Calder has a brief but unenlightening description, and doesn't hit the innovative genius key that a documentary I watched did. Alexander Calder had a roll of wire in his pocket and a pair of pliers, and when inspiration hit he would create, anywhere and anytime, and made masterpieces like this circus of minitures
