Denying static sculpture perception, balanced forms of Walter Leblanc's artworks seem to move together with a viewer, referring to kinetic and optical art. "The aspect of the torsion depends on: 1. the rotation movement 2. the number of revolutions of this rotation 3. the direction of the rotation (left-right) The entire aspect of the work is determined by the interdependence of 1., 2. and 3. through the torsion and the programme of correlation between the torsions" (Walter Leblanc, source: The walter & nicole leblanc foundation, www.walterleblanc.org).
