ABOUT THESE SCULPTURES

These kinetic wood sculptures are not driven by an electric motor. The viewer participates in the art by winding it up by hand and starting it's random movement. The run-time of these art pieces depends on the number of winds not exceeding 20-22. They run well over one hour. Some of Melissa's designs incorporate a moiré pattern. This mesmerizing effect occurs when identical wheel pattern's are superimposed on top of each other while rotating in the opposite direction. Sound is also part of the art experience as the wheels turn and change direction. Overall, these sculptures produce a relaxing visual experience that can be enjoyed over and over again.
