Fibonacci Ring

Jacob Steenholdt's avatar Jacob Steenholdt

The kinetic hanging sculpture pictured here is made of paper, painted bamboo, silicone joints, light (weighs less than a pound), strong and based on Fibonacci mathematics. It hangs by fish line. The movement is generated by the surroundings and not mechanical. It is sensitive, changes speed and is always in motion. The motion is usually very slow. The one shown here has been in place for 3 years with no engineering issues.
