Abstract

Pulled by gravity, a suspended stone descends. Its pendant line engages with a pulley on a cog, winding a motor to produce light. Arms holding spotlights bend down and up and turn back on themselves, punctuating the path of the stone and revealing the edges of the dark. Shadows thrown from the moving weight shift slowly. Swelling and contracting they steal and surrender space. (to Navigator) Parts and Materials: Stone and counterweight (granite, 5/1 kg, Tanuma Bay, Saaremaa); Electric Motor/Generator (12VDC, 5W) x 2; LED Spotlight (1W) x 6; Motion Transfer Mechanism (100 x 400 x 35, acrylic); Pendant Line (Steel/Rubber); Gooseneck Arms (600/r=4) x 6; Re-chargeable battery (12V); Diode (directional) x 2.
