Zephyr – A Small Gust of Wind

Zephyr is a kinematic sculpture, that is inspired by the flight of a bird. The idea was to create a module using CAM and sliders, that mimic the motion during flight, and repeat this module to form a continuous wave motion.

The sculpture has a central shaft which has a 15 degree displacement between the consecutive modules, enhancing the continuity in the wave motion created.

The wave motion created is very pleasing to the eyes and the music enhances the experience of watching the whole kinematic sculpture perform. All of this is powered by a 9 volt DC battery or it can be connected to an adapter too.
