Kinetic Sculpture for the BMW Museum, Munich 2008

Kinet­ic Sculp­ture for the BMW Muse­um, Munich 2008 from ART+COM on Vimeo.

The “Kinet­ic Sculp­ture” metaphor­i­cal­ly trans­lates into space the form-find­ing process of vehi­cle design. The inter­play of mechan­i­cal and elec­tron­ic com­po­nents cre­ates a dynam­ic art piece reflect­ing the pre­cise exchange between a great num­ber of indi­vid­ual ele­ments and the sin­gle, coher­ent pic­ture that emerges from them.
Attached by thin steel wires to indi­vid­u­al­ly-con­trolled step­per motors, 714 met­al spheres move up and down, seem­ing­ly lev­i­tat­ing.
