Let·gayle (Jean Tinguely),1925.5.22-1991.8.30, Gemini. Swiss dadaist painter, sculptor, great master of mechanical experiment art, famous dreammaker in the second half of the 20th century.
Dingley was born into a working family in fribourg, Switzerland, but soon moved to Basel. Dingley spent most of his childhood in solitude, frequently visiting the woods near his home for shelter. It was in this forest that dingley realized his first work of dynamic machinery. "I spent many weekends in the forest, along a stream... It was a fir forest and sounded like a church. I've made a dozen little wooden wheels, each with its own speed, which varies according to the speed of the water.. Their sounds can travel far with the woods. I imagine lonely walkers hearing my symphony before they hear the sound of the forest.
At first glance, dingley's works look like a pile of scrap iron junk. In fact, they are indeed made of "rubbish". The discarded garbage in the industrialization of the new era has a new life under dingley's "magic". Among them, "hail to New York" is an accidental self-destructing machine, which has completed self-deconstruction in 27 minutes. On the one hand, it is undoubtedly a satire on the shining modern New York civilization; on the other hand, it is the evanescent nature of art works, which expresses the complete madness and freedom.

Dingley described it as a "disaster simulation," saying: "I wanted to show the end of civilization through modeling." Harold Rosenberg, a famous American art historian and an advocate of action painting, regarded dingley's work as one of the "ICONS of twentieth-century art" that could be compared with duchamp's "the naked woman down the stairs," Picasso's "guernica," and DE conning's "woman one." In the deserts of Copenhagen, Denmark, and Nevada, in late 1961 and early 1962, dingley displayed his self-destructing machine, one of the late century works and two of the late century works respectively. Fireworks and high-explosive drugs were placed in his machines, making the automatic destruction of his works more violent and terrifying. The motorized contraptions have been described as "end-of-the-year studies, self-destructive, energetic and aggressive devil sculptures".
