Kinetic sculpture "LighthousE-FisH"
Mechanical fish – a combination of sculpture and engineering. The interweaving of mechanics and art at the highest level of craftsmanship, filling inanimate mechanisms with life. The main gear moves through the linkage system, opening the aperture blades, the large and small gears rotate, and the central diaphragm opens. The fish comes to life, filled with light, giving inspiration, giving birth to new images, mesmerizing with the perfection of every detail. It is not like any other inhabitant of the ocean. The fish is a symbol of the eternal cycle of life – a beacon in our complex and troubled world, able to lead through time and space.
A steampunk kinetic lamp was first presented at the international exhibition in Moscow in 2012. There are only four copies of the sculpture in private collections today.
Lighthouse fish based on the classic iris diaphragm. The case is made of American walnut, trimmed with elements of copper, brass and leather. The gears of the diaphragm drive are covered with gold leaf.
