Rolling Ball Sculpture #145 - Watch Video
These two large sculptures are the culmination of months of designing, planning, construction and installation. The sculpture contains a host of new track components and mechanisms. The two main sections of the sculpture measure 1500mm x 900mm x 800mm and are each suspended on a single pane of glass which is mounted to the ceiling and floor. The two main sections are then connected together with thirteen tubular chrome plated bridges, one jump and one tipping bridge. The 35mm marbles remain on their own system, yet intertwine and interact with each other throughout the entire sculpture. The sculpture is also connected to the in-home automation system by the client, and switches on when movement is detected in the room and complies with various settings as set by the user.
