Kinetic sculpture "CinemA-FisH"
A mechanical sculpture in the steampunk genre, an absolute image in depth that perfectly conveys the mood of the era of the birth of cinema. The end of the nineteenth century: the rapid development of mechanics, chemistry, physics, and the arts. A critical mass of knowledge has accumulated, and humanity simply had to give birth to something great, and it was born - the Great Dumb - “subsonic” cinema! It became the forerunner of modern cinema.
CinemA-FisH is a perfect embodiment of the image of cinema. The fish is silent and large-scale. Everything in it meets the assigned tasks: form, materials, parts, performance. The smooth movements of the body and all mechanisms create a special mood, fascinate with an impeccable game. The fish looks at our world through the camera lens, shaking her fins thoughtfully.
Rare lenses and a movie camera are used in manufacture of the fish. All parts are handmade of genuine leather, copper, bamboo, American walnut, oak, beech, linden.
