Mirrors by Anthony Howe

Anthony Howe looks to be one of most environmentally friendly kinetic sculptors on the planet. Here is a video of his latest work which is constructed of 100 mirrors whose movement is established by a grid linkage to a wheel composed of stainless cups. Only very slight wind is needed to activate the sculpture and does not spin overly fast in high winds. As a result very slight movement of the mirrors generates dramatic visual effects.

The front on view of the sculpture moreso hides the mechanism moving the mirrors but here are some photographs that shows this apparatus in more detail.

More works from the Mirrors series, here.
