BMW Kinetic Sculpture by ART+COM.

The Kinetic Sculpture for the BMW Museum metaphorically translates the form-finding process in design into the space. This installation consists of 714 metal spheres hanging from thin steel wires attached to individually controlled stepper motors, and which at first seem to be ruled by accident only. Elegantly and flexibly they move uncoordinatedly up and down through a space covering 6 sqm, before these movements evolve through several concrete and at times planar shapes to enact profiles of historic and current BMW automobiles – just to dissolve again the next instant. The process of form-finding is thus presented with a visually fascinating approach, conveying at the same time how the “open” and “playful” informs a quality of unmistakable elegance and sportiness.
