That Wheel Thing

 

 

 

 

 

This is a small maquette I made…

 

 

 

 

…as one element of an interactive sculpture I proposed for the lobby of the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley. I pictured it as a kind of Russian Constructivist orrery. I asserted that the wheel would roll via some mechanism and slowly circumnavigate the room along the circular rail. The stone “comet” with its copper tail would thus orbit the space with its tail always pointing out, as comets do.
