Kinetic Sculpture, Paradise, Hansen House, Jerusalem, Curators Sala Manca, 2015
A kinetic sculpture that generates a flower like robot moves its petals, from introvert to extrovert, in the presence of spectators. The work is partly made out of old computer components, the petals are composed of polygons cuts from a computer shell metals, and it is then pulled by strings and pulleys. The sculpture suggests a transformation for these electronic components using a form which expresses youth, reproduction and temporariness. Those concepts are derived from broader idea of ‘life’ which altogether are projected on the mechanic-electronic system and enlightening its other aspects. This way, after ending their functional duty, these systems are free for their own lives.
