BEAUTY: Art--Tim Knowles
UK artist Tim Knowles uses elemental forces like gravity, wind and water to create his thought-provoking and beautiful works of art. In one series, he attaches pens to tree limbs suspended over paper and allows the wind to dictate the designs drawn by the trees themselves. In another, he built a device that suspends a pen over paper and moves with the gravity inside a moving car boot. And in a completely enchanting series, he used a very long shutter exposure to photograph full moons reflected in bodies of water, so the familiar shape of the moon is distorted and alien.
