Expanding and contracting toy spheres create a surprisingly dramatic effect for this art installation
Germany-based artist Nils Völker has used 108 toy spheres to create ‘Bits and Pieces‘, a kinetic art installation.
The children’s toys can expand to a multiple of their size. The artist has used servo motors on each toy, which are individually controlled by a micro-controller, to enable them to move in an organic way.
