Telus Spark Science Museum
This sculpture weaves organic forms with industrial structures and pump jacks reflecting a world where technology and nature are increasingly intertwined. The sculpture is a counterweighted mobile that uses the inertia of the structure to fluidly capture the energy of a small motor.
This kinetic bird mobile is activated by a small motor with a motion sensor that turns on when visitors walk through the lobby of the museum. The light-weight sculpture is precisely counterweighted to capture the fluid motion of a bird's wings.
