Not just whirligigs of color and shapes

An 8' tall silicon bronze by Andrew Carson

We have discovered another fascinating Rhino user, Andrew Carson Kinetic Sculpture: Whirligigs ranging from sophisticated metal to a cacophony of colors. And always delightful and fun. To see the art in motion watch one the videos.

The artist starts with a rough sketch, stores those ideas, and eventually pulls the most intriguing for his projects. He then works digitally, sizing the parts and working out the mechanics, including reflecting the rotations and clearances on these moving pieces of art, designed to withstand 60 mph windstorms.

Andrew Carson Kinetic Sculptures will be at these art fairs this summer:
