Dance of Energy
Landscape Spatial Composition
The main idea of the composition Dance of Energy is an expression in material form of the two manifestations of energy- external and internal.The manifestation of external-visible form of energy is reflected in the compositional dynamic of the structural elements, in the reflections on the surfaces. Internal-hidden form is manifested in the tension of the structural elements-ropes are stretched, while the inner layers of trusses- is compressed.The totality of these manifestations creates a sense the harmony of the Dance of Energy.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Design consists of two C-shape trusses, bound with ropes, locking them in certain position. As a result of mounting a rigid self-supporting structure is formed. This structure is capable of changing location in space. The design is mounted on a transparent base, which emphasizes independence and self-sufficiency and creates the impression of floating in the air.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The design is intended to be viewed from afar and near and is designed to evoke a sense of wonder and delight from the seen. And to make people think about what is the true nature of things is considerably more complicated and requires an internal effort to its understanding.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2015.
Ended in September of 2015.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Layers of trusses can be made of metal, carbon fiber or glued wood and are should be toned under aged metal.
Tighten the layers of the trusses must be made of chromed metal.
Ropes are made of high-strength synthetic fibers.
One of the trusses has a mirror facing of planes. The solar panels, generating electrical energy, are mounted in a plane facing the sun The opposite plane facing the audience, is equipped with LED lamps that begin working in the dark.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The design covers an area of 21 m2.
Overall height - 3800 mm.
Max radius trusses - 2600 mm
The spatial structure, the tensile - compression, cables, solar panels, energy.
Design visually breaks the laws of physics and creates a feeling of floating curved elements in the air. This is due to the absence of rigid connections between the basic elements are visually much larger and weightier than thin cables.
After creating the layout design in a reduced form, the most difficult was to understand the true scale of the object and correctly positioning the elements in space as they have physical properties - size, weight, strength. This affects the stability of the structure.
