Playing with Wind

These are some pretty crazy looking sculptures. They look pretty neat, like elaborate wind turbines — which I've always found so graceful and intriguing. 
Now take another look at these sculptures....
Talk about "neat"... They're down right amazing.

These kinetic sculptures are from Washington artist Anthony Howe. They are fabricated from metal and designed to move in 1 mph winds, while also withstanding up to 90 mph winds.

I absolutely love the feeling of rolling waves that these ornate "windmills" imply. I can only imagine the mathematics and timing that go into creating these undulating shapes. The incorporation and importance of nature (and natural power) into these very distinctly man-made structures has a magical effect.  

See many more samples of kinetic art on Howe's website,
