Haines Kinetic: “Disco” Mobile (Kinetic Sculpture)

Kinetic sculpture mobile entitled “Disco”

This mobile combines traditional and contemporary construction materials. The discs (hence the title “Disco”) are 3D-printed PLA material, hand-sanded and painted. They are then balanced and joined using traditional metal wire methods. Each element is connected to the next using fishing swivels, providing 360 degree movement and infinite variations.

The lightness of the 3D-printed shapes makes this an excellent indoor mobile, responsive to air currents generated simply by human movement, convection or ventilation. Outdoor installation is not recommended. Dimensions are roughly 32” high by 34” dia. (81 x 86 cm)

Haines Kinetic: “Four” Mobile (Kinetic Sculpture)

Kinetic art sculpture mobile entitled “Four”

This mobile is an update on the “midcentury modern” mobile style made famous by Alexander Calder. The bird-like shape is also reminiscent of Marco Mahler.

It features a four-ounce lead fishing weight (hence the title) and the other parts are made of galvanized steel sheet and wire. Three of the shapes are black and the top shape is teal blue. Dimensions are roughly 24” high by 36” día. (61 x 91 cm). The materials and flowing responsiveness of this mobile make it ideal for outdoor installation. Indoors also works nicely.
