Authentic piece of kinetic art now at MAD

The MAD Museum is now displaying a fascinating piece of art by Amsterdam-based artist, Lukas van de Vrande.

‘MOVING STRIPES’ 
This is a true-to-form, accurate piece of kinetic art and Lukas made it out of steel and polyacetal in 2013.

Each set of gears has a different number of teeth, so each set of gears has its own dimensions and turnaround time. A set of two equal gears makes a line move, each line with its own speed and period. The sum of all stripes together makes the composition.
