Dinoball, The Instability of Form

A project just completed for the Decompression event in NYC:

A cross between a teacup fairground ride and a teeter totter, The Instability of Form (aka Dinoball) is an interactive sculpture. It will have three dinosaur heads mounted on it, and the riders' collective motion can lean it back and forth encouraging one dinosaur over another. (The piece can also be spun on wheels) The three heads express the continuity and instability of forms in nature as they evolve. Each one is slightly different, and the circular nature of the piece asks the question: "which came first, the chicken or the dinosaur egg?"
