  • Kinetics

    An installation consisting of 25 kinetic/lighting sculptures, commissioned by Artwise Curators for temporary show at Maison Blanche, Paris. Constructed from Plexiglass rod and tubes of  fabric mesh, each unit within the installation was strung between a steal base and self-designed motorised mechanism. The bases acted as an anchor as the motorised mechanisms slowly coiled each unit into a spiral/helix structure. On reaching the optimum point tension (when each unit was unable to coil any further), the motorised mechanisms realised the coiled structures, at which point the velocity of the uncoil is such that the illusion of a ‘whirlwind of light’ is created. This cycle is then repeated.
