Murmuring mk2 kinetic sculpture – work in progress
Some work in progress pics of my little whimsy, Murmuring mk2. In a similar theme to Murmuring, it’s very much inspired by the massed flight of starlings in a murmuration – budgerigars do a similar sort of thing which is convenient as the feathers are discarded by my kid’s budgies.
Together so much more than apart, many of us, we do become more, something new, with a life of its own, still independent but very much inter-dependent too. Murmuring mk2 is a play on this, on the beautiful pattern and chaos that can emerge from the contradictions in a life both bound and free.
25x25x25cm, stainless steel, brass, bearings, budgie feathers.
