This work is based on four words: Alexander Calder, balance, movement and animal.
From Alexander Calder’s statement: “Sculpture was static until I arrived and gave it movement”. I personally consider Calder a genius of the 20th century sculpture. However, by analyzing his works we can see that the vast majority of his pieces move around a limited area, they are all suspended from a point, wall, floor or ceiling. As if they were in motion...let’s give them wheels.
This piece applies principles of mechanical compensation of weighs distributed in the upper and lower part of the wheel axle, with an error of a few grams in the upper part to a humidity of 70%. That way, depending on the humidity in the room, it either stands straight or it leans forwards or backwards. There’s the possibility of compensating the balance by moving its tentacles-hair.
A beast that emanates creative madness through all the holes in its skull. The body cannot restrain so much creativity and it explodes by creating when in contact with air.
