The Kineticus


The Kineticus is an artwork whereby the wind communicates with us by turning around nine characters on three pillars. With as result that the wind creates in total 27 different English trilateral words which will inspire people to communicate 24 hours a day with each other.

Moma
Initially I made this artist impression for the Moma. They were not interested. Now I hope to realize The Kineticus for another building in New York were people come together to talk, to write, to listen, to sing, to dream, to chat, to think and to relax. The Grand Central for example would be a great location.

Wind
The technique of The Kinetikus is very simple; I only need wind to rotate the triangular boxes freely about their shaft. Although, people can also communicate with The Kinetikus and others by texting one of the  27 words through SMS messaging.

George Rickey
The Kinetikus is inspired by the following kinetic artworks of the great American artist George Rickey “Two Turning Vertical Rectangles” in Rotterdam.

The lightartwork
The white pearls (boxes) are transparent and at night the transparent boxes will be lighted with leds from inside. The Red, Green, Blue (RGB) leds inside are connected with sensors: temperature (red), humidity (blue) and atmospheric pressure (green) and together they are able to show 256 (R) x 256 (G) x 256 (B) = 16,7 million unique colors. Please use the dashboard below to experience the variety of colors The Kineticus can have. You will immediately see the effect.
