In this video, Lottie is set-up in my back yard and is moving by the wind. It’s made completely from recycled metal. “Kinetic” means energy in motion. Wind moves the whimsical blades of the sculpture that balances on a single pinhead made from tungsten carbide. The two pieces are only connected by gravity. There is less than 1/64th of an inch joining the two pieces allowing almost zero friction between them. Lottie is made out of an old fly-wheel gear, a giant bearing for the base and other recycled metal. For more info go to www.derekmcdonaldartworks.com
