Waltzing Hammers transforms a few standard home and garden tools into a piece of kinetic sculpture. This is a hand powered piece; a gentle push puts the system in motion for five to ten minutes. The smooth flowing motion is obtained by the careful placement of the axles. Each hammer rotates independently on its own axle but its location in space is determined by the hammer it is connected to. This is a great piece to watch after a hard day at work. The freedom of motion is hypnotic and the gradual slowing of the system over time can melt away the tensions of the day. By the time it has come to a stop your mind may also be at rest.
