Ideas and more ideas. Trying to organize in a choreographic and economical way the installation.
Here are some sketches and variations in 3d. I'm trying to keep a simple complexity so it actually works.
My first ambition was to create a sophisticated machine with various mechanismes. However, time delay and the amount of time to fabricate a 1/1 mechanical piece is beyond my capacities. So I'm trying to be strategic in the connexions and the machine network. Simple is not simplistic.
For the moment, the machine is meant "to be" (like the Eames Solar Toy). It has no particular function but "dances" in a scenographic way.
The idea is to have a system activated by leg power. I'm currently working on the speed of the machine so that a fast movement gently turns into a very slow movement creating a suspense and a absurdity.
Tomorrow I'll see the carpenter and discuss balance, possibilities, structure, time of fabrication...
