A kinetic sculpture designed by Manuel Grases
Like a hanging mobile sculpture, the Kinetic Blue is a piece of art made to float on air and react to currents and different atmospheres.
Created in Madrid, Spain, it displays an aluminum spine that serves as holding skeleton to an aluminum frame. From this rectangular frame, a blue sail of plastic material sticks out on a bend on each side. It resembles a boat sail ready to navigate — once hung, it starts turning by the force of wind in eclectic circles.
Only 1 Kinetic Blue has been made. It is part of a collection of unique kinetic statues
designed ad hoc by expert Manuel Grases, who also creates roundabout art, modern style decorative artifacts, and such. This hanging mobile sculptures are edited by Beamalevich.
Kinetic art involves some aspect of movement. This can include electric motor-powered sculptures, artworks that move in response to the wind, or optical illusions that give the impression of movement (like Op Art).
Very popular during the 1950s, its origins can be traced back even to the 1800s, with sculptors like Auguste Rodin trying to capture movement in their works.
