Carnival of Fulcra

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

This mobile, which rotates very freely, weighs under 5 pounds but is at present about 13 feet long. In its present state it needs a space the diameter of 17 feet. My intention is to add another tier to it, in which case it would need about 24 feet to rotate within. When it is enlarged with another tier it is likely to still be well within 20 pounds.

Entry Details
  • Art form: 3-D
  • Depth: 4 ft. (variable w/ rotation)
  • Medium: Dried foliage and paper
  • Width: 22 ft. (variable w/ rotation)
  • Year created: 2013
  • Height: 9 ft.

Venue & Connection Information

This will need to hang within a 24 X 24 ft. space. Smaller could be negotiated if necessary, since the upper tier has not yet been made. One or more small fans would be good to have to ensure air movement and therefore rotation of the mobile. It is likely to weigh less than 20 pounds.

Venue Considerations
  • Special Lighting needed: No
  • Internet needed: No
  • Indoor Space needed: Yes
  • Outdoor Space needed: No
  • Audio/Video needed: No
  • Electrical needed: Yes
