An inventor by nature, Gordon Bradt, founded Kinetico Studios in 1972, producing internationally acclaimed kinetic art.
He has been awarded over two dozen U.S. patents for a wide range of inventions, including the mechanism for his kinetic clock sculptures. In 1991, Toronto Pearson commissioned a Six Man Clock for the newly renovated Grand Hall in Terminal 3. Built following Bradt’s patented design in Canada, this 4.6-metre tall edition was donated and built by Beckett Executive Class Stores. The name of this clock refers to the six male figures whom appear to be operating the clock by pushing and pulling the various levers and cranks.
