What you are seeing here is a giant pattern-making machine, directed by a controller that can be seen near the center-most column. 
-
  • There are 25 groups of rotating arms.
  • Each group has 4 members. 
  • Each arm is told to go to one of those angles - 
  • either randomly or in predesigned patterns. 
  • All groups perform identical actions.
-
-
While resting, the arms signal to each other visually and with very soft tones, creating a subtly changing visual and musical environment.

I like to leave this ever-changing view on the monitor screen as a display of kinetic art.

Kinetic art is art that contains moving parts or depends on motion for its effect. The moving parts are generally powered by wind, a motor or the observer. Kinetic art encompasses a wide variety of overlapping techniques and styles.
