Celestial Pointer -from the Conceptual Tools series
steel and brassht: variable
Celestial Pointer is a Conceptual Tool that will point to any object in the sky, including those visible only from the hidden hemesphere.
These delicate but tough kinetic mobiles and stabiles are simple sculptural “tools”– machines such as indoor windmills designed to respond to the subtlest of air movements like living organisms.
In the very process of creating them practicality becomes lost in the object's esthetic appeal, hopefully inspiring viewers to consider esthetics in everyday human-made surroundings.
