Max Eastley
Aeolian Circles
Max Eastley is an internationally recognized artist who combines kinetic sculpture and sound into a unique art form. His sculptures exist quizzically on the border between the natural environment and human intervention and use the driving forces of electricity, wind, water, ice. He has exhibited both interior and exterior works internationally.
Max Eastley is also very well known as a musician and has played concerts solo and with numerous and eclectic groups of musicians in such prestigious venues as the South Bank Arts Centre and Barbican in London; Millenium Park Chicago and the Volksbuhne in Berlin. He has produced numerous recordings and composed music for films, dance pieces, museum exhibitions and Light and Sound performance pieces.
Since 2003 he has been an artist with the Cape Farewell Climate Change Project for whom he has created a number of installations, compositions and performances, most recently (this year) at the Science Museum London.
He is currently an Arts and Humanities Research Council Senior Researcher at Oxford Brookes University, investigating Aeolian phenomena through artistic practice and historical research.
