3D Designs

Having lived in the Boston area, I was in contact with a few MIT engineers who worked on the design for a permanent settlement on Mars. It made me think that, when mankind would live in space, there would eventually develop a need for art in space, and what kinds of opportunities would a non-gravity environment have to offer for the arts.

I designed a model that, in a non-gravitational environment, would employ various dimensions, going further than the three or four dimensions we are familiar with here on earth. I started with a three-dimensional design, comprised of three parts that are connected similar to a crank-shaft. Once in space, it would spin-rotate-and-tumble while constantly unfolding and closing. At this stage, we are talking about kinetic art or moving art. Over a period of time, the sculpture changes its position and so its appearance. Time becomes the fourth dimension. This is, by itself, not new. Alexander Calder already applied this principle in his mobiles.

 

On both inner sides of this crank-shaft, I installed a solar panel that would generate power to the sculpture. Every time it unfolds, it would expose the panel to the light while generating electricity to an on-board radio that would send out radio signals. This could happen independent of each side and at a different frequency. If, however, the unit closes or it would arrive in a space shadow, the radio would silence. Sound becomes a fifth dimension. We could install LED lights that activate when there is power. These lights would affect the visual appearance. Light would become a sixth dimension.

We hardly can imagine the show when all six dimensions become activated at the same time. Mind boggling!
