Meet Zinnia: a spring driven kinetic sculpture that runs for 40 minutes on a full wind. Its display wheels are 24″ in diameter and change rotational speed and direction to make trippy shapes and patterns. You can always try to make your own kinetic sculptures that look like this but I am already digging what I am seeing here. Zinnia can technically accept other display wheel sizes, shapes, and forms. The sky’s the limit.
Tackling something like Zinnia is a great way to get started with kinetic sculptures. You can buy the plan below. This is truly a special work by Clayton Boyer.
