The constantly shifting rotation rates combined with this pattern creates a piece I find hard to stop watching. 

I played with the number of spokes, their thickness and their angle relative to each other. Eventually I found a design that I thought would work both visually and dynamically. I tested the patterning by generating an animation of the design in motion. Of course the real test was to actually make the design. My first attempt wasn't quite right. It was still too off balance. I tweaked the design and refined my center of mass calculation to more precisely locate the exact point. The second attempt worked as I had hoped. 

I love the mix of 3 different patterns during each rotation. Half of the pattern shows as collapsing fans while the opposite half is expanding. Just as that becomes recognizable everything is wiped away in a blink pattern. The constantly shifting rotation rates combined with this pattern creates a piece I find hard to stop watching.

After you place your order, we will do the work for you. Normally the process will include cutting the wood, polishing, coating. Then there is the process of motion testing (from 2-5 days depending on the project) after testing and adjusting we will proceed to apply a layer of glossy paint on the work to both increase the aesthetics and protect the work from insects,mildew. Finally we will pack the item and send it to you.
