Dancing with Currents

Buoyed and suspended in the ocean, marine plants sway and undulate, quiver and dance in the path of ocean currents. The seven multi-axis, twisted, undulating turned 'plants' of this kinetic sculpture are suspended on single steel wires. An embedded mechanism in the base produces their continuous movement. Their slow subtle swaying and quivering illustrates their dancing with currents, their invisible partner. Glimpses of this movement can be seen on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/user/RPRkinetics This idea popped into mind several weeks ago and the technical and aesthetic challenges were intriguing. Not sure I arrived at where I thought I was going, but here is where I have ended up. :-) Any and all reactions, impressions, suggestions, critiques certainly welcome.
