Wind Catcher

Wind Catcher is a freestanding multi-component mobile.

Two geometric shapes are mounted on each end of a horizontal stainless steel "balance" pole.

Each shape is polished stainless steel. They are hung from the end of the balance pole with hinges, allowing them to spin 360 degrees. The end shapes include suspended steel forms of their own, each one free to rotate in the wind.

The balance pole itself is mounted on a 7' vertical pole anchored in the ground.

A ball-bearing at the top of the vertical pole allows the entire balance pole to rotate.

In high wind conditions, Wind Catcher catches wind from any direction and it's movements are complex and completely unrestrained.
