Concept: The Kinetic Sculpture is a metaphorical translation of the process of form-finding in design. Moving
chaotically at first, the sculpture evolves through several competing forms and eventually resolves
into a final shape whose profile hints at well-known, historic and current, BMW automobiles.
714 metal spheres, hang from thin steel wires attached to individually-controlled stepper motors
and cover an area of six square meters.
