kinetic sculpture

A kinetic model made with recycled metal and a bipolar stepper motor (ripped out of an old scanner). The bipolar motor is controlled with a L293D dual H-bridge and programmed with an arduino. It is in the style of something that the artist len lye would make.

P.S. Hey, watching those late night Art programmes on TV paid off, I actually recognise the name of a New Zealand artist. :-)

If you are interested in Len Lye and kinetic sculptures watch this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-EttQDeVBc Len Lye was limited with the technology of his day but using Arduino, we can all make some noisy metal sculptures. :D
