Brett Doar

Brett Doar is a contraptionist, kinetic sculptor, and engineer. He is best known for his Rube Goldberg machines, which he has designed and engineered for Red Bull, GoldieBlox, Disney, and OK Go’s “This Too Shall Pass” music video.  Brett is an expert at making things move, bounce, swing, and roll. He possesses a magical ability to see and facilitate interactions between found objects, homemade mechanisms, raw materials, and anything you might find in your home or workplace.

He has also created kinetic sculptures and machines for Google, Intel, Nokia/Microsoft, Kiehl’s, Scientific American, GE, and The Colbert Report.  In 2015, Brett was included in Adweek’s Creative 100 List as a Top 10 Visual Artist. In November 2015, he presented a talk on chaos and his artistic process (or lack thereof) at TEDxManhattanBeach.

Brett’s work has been featured in Make:, NPR, CNN, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Popular Science, and PC Magazine.  Brett received his MFA in Arts, Computation, and Engineering from UC Irvine.
