INDN 211: Final Project: The Metal Field

So, looks like my project is all done!! We present tomorrow, and I'm really looking forward to it. It's the last hand-in of the trimester, and then I get a good few weeks off where I get to do whatever I like. Bliss. I'm stoked.

The Metal Field is a kinetic sculpture where I sought to capture the sound the wind makes when it rustles through the grass and trees. Emulating nature while industrialising the sound was a key focus of my abstraction. The base is Jarra and guitar strings, which provides a suitably ethereal sound when the steel pendulum swings across them.

I'll let the photos and video do the rest of the talking.
