Some say kinetic sculpture.....others call it a chain reaction

Either way, it is an extraordinary feat to build and even harder to film. Paul Spooner sent over a load of sketches yesterday for his upcoming residency and there were 3 among them that caught my eye. I thought I recognized them, as his part in a storyboard for a "kinetic sculpture" he created along with Tim Hunkin and Will Jackson. The film is called 'On the Move' and was done for the Science Museum, London. It's delightfully sculptural and certainly kinetic, but I can only see it as a chain reaction. I'll let you decide what you think -- Meanwhile, enjoy Paul's sketches:[gallery]

Watch the completed video of the piece. I'm crazy about it, especially the ending.
