Swiss artist Ruedi Bechtler (born 1942) studied mechanical engineering, and since the 1980s has been making sculptures and installations that merge his obsessions with natural science and technology. Play, coincidence, wonder, decay and waste are all characteristics of the work of this under-recognized artist, who functions as a fascinating intermediary between science and philosophy.
