David Roy’s kinetic sculptures will put you in a trance. via the science explorer
David C. Roy, a graduate in physics from Boston University, crafts stunning wood sculptures powered by various wind-up mechanisms — no need for electricity. His self-propelled works of art can run for anywhere from 5 to 18 hours, and his latest sculpture whirls around for a whopping 40 hours.
The motion and mechanics of kinetic sculptures are truly hypnotizing. In his work, Roy demonstrates the beauty and simplicity of physics.
