Sculpting the Wind: Anthony Howe’s Kinetic Sculptures

Filmed in Orcas Island, Washington, sculptor Anthony Howe discusses the inspiration and work behind his wind-powered, stainless steel kinetic sculptures with Great Big Story: Sculpting the Wind. More from Howe’s site:

“Kinetic sculpture resides at the intersection of artistic inspiration and mechanical complexity. The making of one of my pieces relies on creative expression, metal fabrication, and a slow design process in equal parts.

“It aims to alter one’s experience of time and space when witnessed. It also needs to weather winds of 90 mph and still move in a one mile per hour breeze and do so for hundreds of years.”

Enjoy more of Howe’s work, including Di-Octo, In Cloud Light III, and Lucea.
