TITLE || INNER PYRAMID
KINETIC SCULPTURE/ INSTALLATION
An interactive metal artifact, which contains four sides, each with six metal walls. These walls come together to form a little pyramid on the top of a larger one. The top side of these walls have photovoltaics, so when the pyramid opens during retail opening hours, it will compile solar energy. The solar energy will help produce light when the pyramid is reversed in after retail closing hours and is used as a light fixture. As a result , the pyramid turns upside down depending on the day or night.
This art work is a subconscious research of an ancient geometrical structure of a pyramid. Α form with four sides and two mutable surfaces, which moves up and down depending on the day or night time. The innermost of this work is hidden in the top of the small pyramid. It is metaphysical, which is the excess form of nature. The main pyramid hides all the energy which helps the structure move and give it space for motion.
The initial function of this idea starts with the main point, a form surrounded by four walls and these walls in turn have five larger walls on each side. The final geometrical form is completed in a pyramid shape. The artifact designed to interact with the viewers. Every time you get close to it, the walls extent upwards and when you distant yourself from it, the walls retract in the ground. “Inner Pyramid” is formed for the inner truth of Balanced Art.
Inner Pyramid is a green geometrical interactive approach for public art.
