Dynamic Structure 29117 is the latest in the collection of kinetic structures created by Willem van Weeghel in the last year. The 29117 is a mural object with dimensions of 4.20 x 2.80 m. It consists of a white background and 32 dark blue lines. These lines (made of thin stainless steel and carbon) can all rotate independently from each other. There are eight groups of 4 lines that rotate into each other. Every line is moved by a completely silent electrical motor. So in total 32 motors and no sound. The motors are driven by an integrated operating
System with custom made software written in PLC (c-based) that allows precise positioning.
Out of random chaotic structures ordered structures are processed. In the work is a kind of library with cycli of movements and structures. The software produces a random moving structure and chooses a cyclus from the library. The transitions between these cycli give shape to new structures that are hardly ever the same.
