this impressive and contemplative work of art adorned a collector’s private park on the beautiful Island of Ré in the Atlantic ocean for years. Made entirely of steel, the pendulums begin to swing in even the slightest summer breeze.
We’ve included a short video here, so it’s best to get an impression of the sensation for yourself. The sheer height and spatial spread are fascinating, you can walk along under the mobile.
It is difficult to find words for this piece, in the end the overwhelming effect only becomes apparent when you really stand in front of it!
