Diffusion Choir is a kinetic sculpture that uses 400 folding elements to reveal the movements of an invisible flock of birds. Its movements are always changing, driven by custom software running a flocking algorithm. The sculpture hangs in the atrium of 650 East Kendall Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was commissioned by BioMed Realty. Diffusion Choir was created by Sosolimited, Plebian Design, and Hypersonic. Learn more at www.sosolimited.com/work/diffusion-choir

Alexander Calder.-KINETISCHE KUNST. Men kan de kinetische kunstwerken indelen in bewegende en beweegbare werken. Bij de bewegende werken heeft de beweging in het kunstwerk zelf plaats, hetzij door middel van wind of water, hetzij door een motor of een magneet. Bij de beweegbare werken ontstaat de beweging door een ingreep van de beschouwer.
