Students Create Kinetic Sculptures

In Ms. Patterson’s Digital Arts class, students are designing a mobile inspired by Alexander Calder’s kinetic sculptures. “Calder (1898–1976) was an American sculptor who is best known for his innovative mobiles, kinetic sculptures powered by motors or air currents” (Wikipedia). In designing these mobile’s, Ms. Patterson’s students had to digitally render biomorphic shapes, which are geometric shapes “inspired by forms found in nature” (Woodson Art Museum). Lastly, the students had to attach their biomorphic shapes to wire to make their kinetic sculptures.
