Variation II Sun - wall-mounted kinetic sculpture by David C. Roy

Check out the latest beautiful and mesmerizing kinetic sculpture by David C. Roy! The piece provides a variety of kaleidoscopic patterns ranging from sunbursts, to solar flares, pinwheels, and spinning circles.

From the artist's web site:

Variation Sun has gone through lots of iterations. It proved a more challenging design than I had originally imagined. I wanted an asymmetric design where the points of the arc of one wheel followed the back of the arc of the adjacent wheel. I also wanted the clockwise pattern to be different than the counterclockwise pattern. It was easy to do on the computer but hard to find real world shapes that would balance. The double arc design solved the problem and I think enhanced the design.
