He produces moving sculptures made of suspended metal mesh or rods that float in space, leading a dance of subtle colour and movements animated by small engines and a sophisticated technological device. Crespin also plays with his materials’ transparency and shadows. An heir to the South American kinetic art movement, he developed a very personal line with his poetic mechanism of geometry.

Crespin’s works were included in the exhibitions Dynamo at the Grand Palais (Paris, 2013), Turbulence at the Cultural Space of Louis Vuitton (Paris, 2012), the Busan Biennale (Busan, 2014) and in the Boghossian foundation.
