Wood that Works by David C Roy

Falcon (2007).

David C Roy‘s wooden sculptures are fine enough when viewed like this but really need to be seen in motion since these are all kinetic pieces. Roy’s website has a choice of animations for each work, from Flash diagrams to YouTube videos, all of which are fascinating to look at. Each piece is spring-driven and runs for several hours. The movements aren’t as predictable as you’d imagine either, many of them create an evolving range of patterns depending on the speed or arrangement of the components.
