Seth Goldstein: retiree tinkerer
Bethesda, Maryland - January 28, 2015: Instead of miniaturizing blood catheters, retired NIH mechanical engineer Seth Goldstein makes kinetic sculpture robots. "Ro-Bow," pictured, plays the violin. "Why Knot" ties a neck tie. Goldstein credits his wife for the names. "Cram Guy," currently on display at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, is a crazy animated desk scene depicting a robot cramming for a test only to nod off to sleep.
