Aiko Groot’s kinetic sculpture appears to defy the laws of gravity. At one moment it is a solid stack of perfectly formed cylinders, at another glance these cylinders gently topple away from one another. The power to move these forms is gathered from the sun. The sculpture absorbs solar energy and moves in response to the changing levels of light in an unpredictable and ever-changing dance. Suitable for both outdoors and indoors, the artist has created the sculpture to also work through mains power supply.
