Kinetic Sculpture for the BMW Museum

Award: Black Pencil

Black Pencil / Environmental Design / Installations / 2009

The Kinetic Sculpture is a metaphorical translation of the process of form-finding in design. Covering an area of six square metres, it comprises 714 metal spheres, hanging from thin steel wires attached to individually controlled stepper motors to animate a seven-minute long mechatronic narrative. Moving chaotically at first, the sculpture evolves through several competing forms and eventually resolves into a final shape whose profile hints at one of many well-known, historic and current, BMW automobiles.
Shortly after the opening of the BMW Museum, the Kinetic Sculpture became the most watched video worldwide in the automotive category on YouTube for a week.
