Caliper, 2011
Steel, piano wire, electronics, electromagnets

Caliper was one of the first of several works that emerged from research I was performing into the design of laboratory instruments. The sculpture consists of two elongated steel forms and a box of electronics. Each steel form is equipped with an electromagnet and a tuned wire. When powered on, the box drives the electromagnets and the sculpture hums pleasantly.
