About making an exception to your call for strictly wind-driven, non-mechanical mobiles. I think my work will make people think about exactly what constitutes a mobile (in the same sense that you note that Calder dominated the notion.) Here, the mobile is driven by nature, both the wind and sunlight (although the motion from sunlight is stronger, the wind only perturbs.) The submitted work is mechanical, but very simply.
