KINETIC METAL BALLS SCULPTURE
This installation (one of 125 exhibits) at the new BMW Museum in Munich, Germany uses 714 metal balls, all suspended by barely visible strings. I'm not exactly sure what's driving the design pattern but it's pretty hypnotizing. WARNING: The music is absolutely atrocious. I can't think of worse music. I'd sit for hours listening to Black Metal through a pair of shitty speakers than listen to the crap they've chosen to present their movie with. This "down-tempo" jazzy shit that you hear at upscale trendy restaurants has got to go! You know what I'm talking about De-Phazz, Tosca and St. Germain!
