Concerto No. 1 for 4 robots by Ricardo Cid.

Ricardo Cid visualizes things differently. Music is heard as mathematical formulae. A calendar with days, months, phases of the moon and more is represented by a pattern of interlocking snowflake-like geometric shapes. The mysteries of physics are constructed of intricate models made with Tinkertoys. The New York Subway system is a three dimensional space warp with black holes to represent major airports.

Come to World Maker Faire in New York to see Ricardo’s singular vision brought to life through a kinetic sculpture where geometric robotic forms dance to music with movement choreographed in computer code.

Born in México City, Ricardo is an engineer, artist and designer who creates art informed by his ability to interpret complicated ideas into unique visual forms. Ricardo works on his projects at his own Black Label Robot Studio.
