Artist Bruce Shapiro just reinvented the zen garden using his amazing Sisyphus Machine. The machine uses magnets that move steel marbles through a thin layer of sand to create incredibly complex and beautiful kinetic sand art.

Shapiro has spent the past 25 years experimenting with computerized motion control and many of his Sisyphus Machines have been installed in locations around the world.
