Song of Lift: Artprize 2012

Categories: Installations, Kinetic

Martijn van Wagtendonk is one of the talented recipients of the Artprize 2012 award in Grand Rapids, MI. His work, entitled Song of Lift, is composed of more than 100 kinetic winged birds. The piece is a 5-minute long, fully automated, viewer sensitive opera. The viewer deposits a coin into an old arcade looking machine, the lights dim, the music begins and the winged creatures begin to move in unison with the music. See a video below with the artist.
