Leak To Lower Lazy Levitating Load

2008 - 2011

solar-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.

Leak To Lower Lazy Levitating Load (prototype)

2007

prototype 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.
