Awesome Sculpture

Water Droplet Automata

Water Droplet Automata

Created by designer Dean O’ Callaghan, this wooden kinetic sculpture replicates the movement of a droplet as it splashes into a pool of water. We wonder how much further the design could be taken to add more ripples.

Coathanger Sculptures

Coathanger Sculptures
