A water teeter totter. Precursor to levitation machines.
2008 - 2011solar-powered kinetic installation
A system for levitation and a meditation on gravity.
Using a solar powered pump and a leaky, elevated barrel, a mass of water is incrementally displaced in order to lethargically levitate, then lower, another barrel (the load) to and from a height equal to the barrel's own.
2007prototype for solar-powered kinetic installation
This is a system for levitation. Mass and gravity are employed in order to lethargically levitate a load until it is hovering at a distance equal to its own height.
