Gathering - kinetic sculpture by Benjamin Cowden

Check out this latest kinetic sculpture from the Benjamin Cowden -- the same artist who created It's the things you can't change that shape you,
No Reward for Good Behavior, and A Series of Passionate but Arbitrary Decisions.

This latest piece is entitled Gathering. It incorporates a double-offset rotary piston, topped with seven brass dishes, which are moved with a four-bar linkage via pinwheel drive train. There is a flywheel in there to smooth out the hand-cranked power supply. Benjamin Cowden has a wonderful way with metal and mechanics, to be sure!
