Icons of Speed - interactiv sculpture, modern and contemporary

Icons of Speed II

The Icons of Speed series is an interactive object made of abandoned materials, especially hard drive motors.

Light sensor measuring brightness. Once the viewer holds light from a smartphone LED or a torch in front of the sensor the hard drive motor starts spinning the hard drive plate. The object is made of abandoned materials. The hard drive plate was silk screened. The object tackles the question about our ever growing pile of rubbish. Why does art always have to be produced from new stuff in order to be famous.
