Cluster of Four Cubes

Cluster of Four Cubes

George Rickey began to produce kinetic sculpture in the late 1940's. The massive element of "Cluster of Four Cubes" is appended by ball bearings to slender arms that branch from a central post. Each cube is precisely weighted and balanced, engineered to turn effortlessly in the lightest breeze; they glide, nearly brushing one another in an intricate and graceful dance that belies their apparent bulk.
