Entry 23 video from Lloyd Konneker
ARTIST: Lloyd Konneker
TITLE: 3 Level
Displays: Hangs from ceiling
Height (w/out hanging wire): 10 in
Max Width: 10 in
Weight: <1 lbs
Electronics, solar cell, motors, piano wire, nylon thread. If you can't accept it since it mechanical, you might hang it in the dark as an inside joke: it WILL turn in the wind since the solar panels are also sails.
Artist Statement: As Calder and other artists experimented with many variations on a basic idea, I experiment on variations on the basic idea that the mobile elements are self-contained and solar powered, driven by a small motor hung from a thread. While they are mechanical, they are powered externally by light: there is no battery or winding up. They are mostly electronic, only the motor is mechanical, and both the electronics and the motor should have a long life, say tens of years.
