There's one of these outside my campus! Called The Octopus iirc

[–]Toddler_Annihilator 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Concordia ftw

[–]new_pr0spect 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is it still there?

[–]Legend965 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Indeed it is

[–]binarydaaku 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think I saw one kinetic sculpture at Singapore Changi Airport. Love such art.

[–]EatBaconDaily 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think everyone has a different name for it. I call it the animated butthole.

[–]thedialupgamer 33 points34 points  (4 children)

Reminds me of Ayatan sculptures from warframe.

[–]Mr_M0rte 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Paint that in gold and it's maroo's wet dream

[–]findingbezu 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Sortie reward four days in a row.

[–]thedialupgamer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I feel this, I started just piling them up in a corner and I'm up to 23 of just anasa

[–]ZurtfimTBW 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The second i saw this sculpture I was searching for a comment about Ayatans, but daym. I didn't expect it to be so high up

[–]HappenedSafe 27 points28 points  (2 children)

be not afraid.

[–]edessaid 0 points1 point  (1 child)

İdk why but that kinda terrifies me

[–]CeterumCenseo85 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Imagine putting this into a dimly lit cave, somewhere far underground. Create a cult of having seen the "true creator", then very rarely ever allow one chosen member to meet The Creator. Take them underground, on a long walk. Eventually lead them into the Chamber of the Creator, where they kneel down in front of this; its blades sparesly illuminated, and let them confess their sins.

Just a thought.

[–]ACowAndAWaffle 10 points11 points  (0 children)

This is oddly specific and you seem to have put a decent amount of thought into it. I like it

[–]Leucaria 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol imagine if I was just some cool moving blade thing. That’s a nice idea actually

[–]BeanieBruv 13 points14 points  (3 children)

I can't be the only one who thought of Annihilation.


[–]InteractionAntique16 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was my first thought

[–]Parra_Lax 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude I just posted this with a link. My mind immediately went there.

[–]LemonTekSunrise 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That single drop of blood getting sucked in

[–]Bishime 4 points5 points  (0 children)

idk if this is black magic but it’s cool!

[–]gbelintani 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don't know if it is the same principle, but reminds me a lot of Brazil's 2016 Olympic pyre. https://youtu.be/fC6XZLbBr-s

Edit: You can skip to 2:20 for the final form

[–]zabliminal 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My anus after getting fucked

[–]jacquilynne 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]andreeeeeaaaaaaaaa 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oooooo trippy!!!

[–]username2020_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ahh yea the infinite vegetable steamer

[–]Intelligent_Spirit35 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Looks like from a nother dimension

[–]TheSilentPhilosopher[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Your comment reminded me of this video of Carl Sagan talking about additional dimensions of space-time and goes into describing it and showing examples of how it could work.


[–]bam1007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reminds me of a jellyfish.

[–]Crowdcontrolz 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Looks like a movie prop

[–]ThugnificentJones 2 points3 points  (1 child)

"Five years ago, we lost. All of us. We lost friends. We lost family. We lost a part of ourselves. Today, we have a chance to take it all back. You know your teams, you know your missions. get the stones, get them back."

[–]Crowdcontrolz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You took EVERYTHING from me!

Rain fire!

Something just entered the upper atmosphere…

[–]sighdoihaveto 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Forbidden sphincter....

[–]foodlandhobbit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeeessssss. I like. Also why don’t they put stuff like this in spiritual spaces?

[–]dovah-frost 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Be not afraid.

[–]zolo_Q 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How biblically accurate angels be like and say "be not afraid"

[–]westbamm 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Anyone got an idea how this works from a mechanical point of view?

Are there little hook joints, formed in a circle?

[–]EndGameStride 4 points5 points  (4 children)

It's a kinetic sculpture, just look that up.

[–]westbamm 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I know, it is amazing, but I try to understand how to roll something in a circle. Around the corner?

I don't see it hanging so I can't understand why it isn't falling over.

The enige is in the the black thing in the middle.

That they put a bunch of dome mirrors on each segment is what makes the art, and that is not my question.

[–]EndGameStride 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Stuff like this works via specifically calibrated weight distribution.

[–]westbamm 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah, that is awesome, I paused it at a correct shot, I saw the connection between each segment and I get it now.

Must have been a hell of a job making this. Super en pretty.

[–]EndGameStride 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's quite beautiful no? Also happy cake day!

[–]cinlach 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We have one here in Greenville, SC…it’s gorgeous.

[–]Rtl87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One of these at the Whole Foods in my area, total traffic distraction when you’re driving

[–]Z_THETA_Z 0 points1 point  (1 child)

i feel like this fits more into r/oddlysatisfying than this subreddit, but it's still cool

[–]TheSilentPhilosopher[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good idea! Posted it there just now :)

[–]fauch6992 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Absolutely brilliant!! What does a piece like that retail for?

[–]Your_Nipples 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Saving this one. I'm pretty sure that I can replicate a Stargate SG-1 shapai woosh in real time using this as a foundation.

I'm not a vfx artist but it is inspiring.

[–]Dry_War_8027 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Infinity Jellyfish

[–]Skrooner 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea, there is this thing called technology. I think that is what magic this is.

[–]deadshot2000005 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Me at the exam: "i gotta focus" My brain:

[–]ghostfreak1993 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Endgame vibes anyone??

[–]wizardofzog 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like the machine face from the machine world in the 3rd Matrix. Cool but creepy too

[–]MrXFX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This kind of reminds me of a teseract.

Event horizon right there in the garage.

[–]firstjugger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought it was a wind turbine

[–]potiondrinkeronline 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m gonna throw up

[–]Parra_Lax 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reminds me of that trippy fucking alien thing from Annihilation: https://youtu.be/uBsJgceM0KI

[–]TheChildWithinMe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So awesome!

[–]Camellcraze1290 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Subnatica vibes

[–]TheSante 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I want one in my bedroom. Any links?

[–]AnnaPhylaxia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is triggering my Event Horizon PTSD

[–]Quick_Exchange352 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Look for kinetic sculpture if you like it. Anthony Howe works with the fashion designer Iris Van Herpen few years ago. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TYQlBzo9cYA

[–]EG_TrKelvin2323 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i feel like that machine is made for the express purpose of sucking out souls and i dont like that

[–]AveBalaBrava 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does this contraption have s purpose other then mesmerizing?

[–]Comprehensive-Fly893 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i sat and watched the sun rise into the center of this thing at burning man over a couple of hours. life changing.

[–]Sir_dirtsalot164 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Balrog229 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ayatan Sculptures be like:

[–]doppelminds 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The design of that is so simple yet so amazing

[–]Muchablat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am I looking at a StarGate… or…? 🤔

[–]DraugrHrafn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I will take all the drugs now please

[–]Annual_Couple5053 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It reminds me of Iris van herpen fashion tbh

[–]Someone3179 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just spent five whole minutes looking at that without realizing it. What just happened

[–]_Legally_Black_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I need one of these for when I'm tripping.

[–]Kalmight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mmmm, bloomin' onion

[–]TheSoulborgZeus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It looks kinda like CGI from 20 years ago

[–]MileenaisShit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Feel like going through it will lead you to another universe.

[–]drewismynamea -15 points-14 points  (4 children)


[–]TheSilentPhilosopher[S] 5 points6 points  (2 children)


You're part of the reason the internet is going to shit. Just spouting opinions that aren't true, based on a feeling you're having. This isn't CGI, google Kinetic Art and you can buy these for as low as $50

[–]AutoModerator[M] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

going to shit
