Tornado Alley is a kinetic sculpture, small wooden houses spin like mad when you blow on a small fan. The harder you blow, the faster they spin. The piece is fun to interact with.
The houses may look a little familiar.
One of my latest project wind-O-farm is a 3D printed sculpture based on the data from Pennsylvania wind farms.
Taking data from all of the wind farms in the state of Pennsylvania, we have 3D printed a kinetic window screen sculpture.
The ‘wind-O-farm’ is comprised of a series of turbines, each representing its respective wind-farm. Turbine size, number of blades, location, and even efficiency is be determined by the data. The look of each turbine is reminiscent of farmhouse windmills, which can still be found across the state of Pennsylvania.
It was my first experience with 3D printing, I really enjoyed it.
I worked on this project with Filipa Tomaz, I think it turned out great.
