Kinetic glass sculptures rotate their wings to fragment light and vision. Viewers immerse themselves into dual characteristics of glass which are fragile and dangerous. Kinetic glass sculptures are bodies. These bodies seem to transform into infinite possibilities of form that are difficult for me to grasp. Sometimes dangerous, sometimes beautiful, individuals that I do not know or understand but can only feel. The precarious glass planes are supported by the central structure of the steel rod. I was able to make complex shapes with simple mechanics of a bevel gear, transferring the rotation of a motor into four different directions of left, right, up and down.
