Spinny Thing Update

A few weeks ago I posted about a few new sculptures I’ve started, none of which have any designs or plans, but are “make them up as you go along” projects.  One of them I’ve been calling Spinny or sometimes Spinny Thing and it’s going to, well spin.  The spinning is going to activate the sculpture much like a centrifugal governor and different kinetic elements will be engaged at different speeds.  The first step was to get the thing spinning so I can start to experiment.  Well, here are some photos of the mounting (I finally got to use that giant I-beam I’ve been lugging around for years) and a little video of Spinny Thing spinning under human control.
