Sailing enthusiasts are sure to agree that the challenge of navigating upon open waters is a mesmerizing, enjoyable and relaxing experience that gets them as close to Mother Nature as humanly possible.While the graceful performances of such water aficionados make their journey appear effortless and easy to execute, in reality, a great amount of knowledge, ability, skill, talent and timing are required to successfully chart any given course. Extensive patience in awaiting to seize the opportunity for a sail to catch wind in order for a boat to move about towards its destination is also needed.
However, sailing is not necessarily a unanimously preferred recreational activity. For those who prefer to keep their sea legs ashore yet remain desirous of gaining a meditative journey, adding a kinetic wind sculpture to a personal outdoor space at their home might just be the ideal solution. Utilizing the similar premise of sailing which relies upon the wind’s direction and velocity, a kinetic wind sculpture harnesses the energy of available natural breezes to move, turn and rotate. Like a sailor, it eagerly awaits the chance to catch the energy of wind to perform for and impress its viewers. The sculpture’s movement provides audiences with a mesmerizing motion that enables a relaxing escape.
Hypnartic Artwork offers a collection of four kinetic wind sculptures including Solar Reflections cast from stainless steel and Spinning Leaves, Concord Swan and Wind Weaver cast from copper.
The meticulous engineering and innovative design of each offers a handsome element of creative expression when in motion and while at rest. The body of the Wind Weaver sculpture resembles flower petals that when spinning appear like a wind enveloped sail. Meanwhile, the stainless steel arms of Solar Reflections scissor the air and spins akin to a pirouetting ballerina. Set upon ball-bearings, each Hypnartic Artwork sculpture quietly and smoothly rotates 360 degrees upon harnessing breezes that come its way. The sculpture’s lively movement exudes a meditative sense that can quickly transform otherwise stagnant environments into a personal oasis of relaxation.
