Multiple Organism 2009

This is a piece of engineering which behaves much like a simple organism.

A series of twelve identical autonomous devices are connected together in space. Solar cells provide the power to rotate the devices and hence alter the distribution of weight, this causes imbalances which spread like waves through the system. There is a natural timing which results in a delicate relationship between the solar cells.

Daniel Chadwick creates delicate and visually fragile mobile sculptures. His organic shapes reflect our increasing awareness of the environment, focusing our attention on other dimensions and layers which surround us.
