Isaac Newton has the market cornered on early physics genius, but his formidable contributions to science are rarely mentioned in the same breath as art. Sculptor David Young, who draws a bit of artistic inspiration from Newton, recently had his own apple-on-the-head moment. "I've always loved taking things apart, and been fascinated with the way science attempts to describe the world, he says. Eventually, I learned to put things back together, literally." Youngs exhibit "Unknown Object-ive" features artwork that combines found objects, cast brass and aluminum spheres, and electrical motors to render scientific principles -- Newton's laws of motion, for example -- in kinetic sculptural form.
