• Mystique Kinetic Sculpture Directions
Mystique is a "patterning" sculpture. Each large patterning wheel is built in two layers using contrasting wood colors. These create double patterns when they are rotated in opposite directions. The dark outer pieces form a rim or frame that constantly forms and collapses. The lighter stained inner spokes create the illusion of shrinking and growing forms as the direction of their rotation is changed.
This is a quiet but not silent mechanism. There is a subdued click as the mechanism levers engage and release small brass pins when the patterning motion changes direction.
