Kinetic sculpture uses analog wires and pulleys to generate fluid motion

Craft & Design Robotics Science Technology

This kinetic sculpture by artist Reuben Margolin installed at the Swiss Center for Technorama near Zurich employs 450 suspended aluminum rods on 256 wires with 3,000 pulleys and sliding bars controlling the system. Interesting effect that employs no computers, only mechanical movements to create the result. Watch the video for the full effect.
