Data Driven Kinetic Sculpture Cyma #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

We could watch Yiannis Kranidiotisvimeo video on repeat…

“Cyma” (from Greek: κῦμα, meaning “wave”) is a real time data driven kinetic sculpture highly inspired by natural repeatability and wave movement. An array of wood planks, connected only with a nylon thread passed from the center, is hanged from the ceiling and reaches the floor. The bottom plank is rotating periodically and sets the whole sculpture in motion. The motion of the bottom plank is creating a wave that physically spreads from one wood to the other. The whole sculpture is waving without any mechanical force (except from the bottom plank), in the natural fundamental frequency and in higher modes called harmonics. This harmonic motion of the sculpture creates a hypnotic and meditational visual space for the visitors. The sculpture’s structure and movements resembles a DNA molecule.

3055 06Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
