David Beck is the most accomplished artist that you most likely do not know. He combines sculpture, painting, textiles, and mechanics to create intricate and kinetic artwork often referred to as a genre of its own. A modern Renaissance man, Beck is the only living artist who can boast about having three solo exhibits at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. His work is sought after by private collectors across the country.
In her latest documentary, Olympia Stone takes us inside David’s magical universe to capture kinetic sculptures and humorous scenes that whirl and twirl and are never quite what they seem.
