Heinz Mack

light dynamo 1963
mixed media
This piece is an aluminium disc decorated with a reed pattern which rotates under glass that has been moulded with a similar pattern, whilst moving the disc it appears to dissolve into a rippling light, and through optical illusion it seems to be reforming itself as an oval at the same time remaining circle. I looked at it for some time and found it incredible, it was a bit noisy though!
