Kinetic sculpture
Paper, motor unit and mechanical components

In this kinetic sculpture a large sheet of paper performs in its limitations to the relation to space. The sheet is hanging at the wall, partly curled over a metal tube. Its orientation changes continuously, rotated by mechanical means. The resulting wave-like fold is accompanied by the mild fricative sound of paper rubbing against each other. The installation plays with characteristics of the material (paper) and the influence of gravity and a metal tube as determining elements. In its slow rotation and the gentle curve of the curled sheet, the plane escapes the confines of its two dimensions.
