The creation of fingers: Treasuring the particle
Two moving robotic hands cherish the particle.
“The particle” being the only subatomic particle that we truly can observe – light.
The hands are built into the likeness of the tools -hands- of the artist.
The kinetic artwork refers to the exploration into the deepest origins of matter, and our understanding of reality. The kinetic sculpture responds to this journey of discovery.
The hands are completely digitally designed, and can now be made by use of CNC lathes and milling machines.
The fingers are composed entirely of 2-dimensional elements that are joined to a 3 dimensional object.
The choice of the materials: brass, and aluminium.
First parts …
