HYDRAULIC MOBILE

Water propelled sculpture

VIGNETTE-PDF 2


This mobile is comprised of five pendulums in equilibrium with a water vessel. Two parabolic water jets continously fill the vessel. When it attains a certain weight, it begins to descend and carries the pendulums to the top. The water continues to fill the vessel until it sets off a siphon that empties the vessel from the bottom faster than the water enters. It then begins to rise, sending the pendulums back down the other way in a fluid movement.
