Easel Windframe

 

Tim Prentice, Easel Windframe

The oversized easel shape provided a familiar display paradigm, and obviated the need for suspension mechanisms. Somehow, though, it seemed a tad trite because of it, though.

One fun aspect of the Easel Windframe was to stand immediately below it and look up. This was one of the few sculptures that you could walk up to like this.

I guess it wasn’t breezy enough for the shiny silver panels to move. I watched them closely and they seemed unmoving. Actually, I checked out the wires that hold them and I couldn’t really tell if the were set up to move.

Maybe the movement is apparent, based on the viewers motion. But then it wouldn’t be a kinetic sculpture, would it?
