EXHIBITS > WAVES > WAVE MACHINE
WAVE MACHINE rolls atop Aqua Circus, a mechanical aquarium installed in the main lobby of Schneider Children's Hospital. Above the waves flies a seagull. A push button starts a motor which turns a series of cams which, in turn, sequentially raise and lower two dozen blue plexi strips. The result is an undulating wave surface.


A prototype for the wave machine and a couple of views of it during its construction phase.
