Der Lauf der Dinge

Several months ago at the Wexner Center Clearance Sale (while we were in Columbus), Mark Gunderson encouraged me to purchase the video "The Way Things Go (der Lauf der Dinge) by Fischli and Weiss. It was cheap, so I went for it.

Yesterday, after connecting the VCR in anticipation of visitors who may require entertainment, I finally watched it. It's very, very cool. Kinetic art ala Rube Goldberg, fire, foam, movement - everything you could want.

There's a preview available at this sales venue. It's quite good.

Related, Purdue University has a regular Rube Goldberg contest (includes some video) as does Argonne National Laboratory. And, of course, Rube Goldberg, Inc
