Objects of Movement: Kinetic Sculpture

To design a Wind Powered Kinetic Sculpture.

The sculpture was built using Teak Wood for the base of the sculpture and 5mm thickness MDF for the spokes of the structure. The blades were constructed using 2 mm thick acryllic that was custom laser cut and then bent into appropriate angles to form a verticle draught turbine arrangement of the blades. A roller ball bearing was used to connect the shaft to the illusion pattern of the MDF. The bearing provided the necessary mechanism for rotation and to avoid the friction.
The sculpture moves even with the slightest and most gentle amount of breeze in a very elegant manner.

"Sprinkle of Wind" is a Kinetic Sculpture that was built as a part of studies in motion and form. The purpose of the exercise was to induce a pleasurable aesthetic experience through movement.
