Wooden Stones Art Installation Proposal

Wood Stones is a proposed art installation that would take place in an indoor gallery space. The instructions listed below are for the prototype of the installation. The installation aims to create a sense of delight, curious and wonder for visitors to the site. With the use of a motion sensor, small motors attached to wooden stones begin to vibrate across the floor. The installation explores the concept of multiplication by taking a relatively simple object and multiplying it for a larger effect.

Inspiration was drawn from the work of Zimoun and Pan Generator.

The instructable for this project can be found here.

Below are a few images of the project.
