Interlace Goethe-Institut

Painted Birch Plywood, Acrylic Domes, Stainless Steel, Painted Maple

Interlace Goethe-Institut is a smaller cousin to Interlace I, containing six interwoven paths, each with unique endpoints. In this version, the diameter is 30″, which is appropriate for home use as well as for intimate public settings. The length of each path varies by plane change quantity (16, 27, 28, 47, 49, and 57), totaling 224. This design offers a series of shorter challenges, which is well suited to a younger or time limited audience. One public commission has been created, and was hand painted in corporate colors. Path lengths vary: 24′, 26′, 28′, 32′, 44′, and 38′, totaling 192′.

Enclosed in a sphere and centered on a gimbal, this piece moves in every direction with the slightest touch, allowing the player to guide a ball along its path. It is part of the “Kinetic” series.
