A Mesmerizing Kinetic Sculpture Twists and Writhes in Perpetual Spiraling Motion

Set atop an aluminum turntable, a spiraling sculpture by British artist Tom Lawton translates a simple mathematic concept into a hypnotic dance. “Wonder” is a sleek copper work of rounded twists based on the shape of a torus or a circular form with a hole in the middle, a donut being a prime example. Lawton’s design coils around an imagined central axis, creating a continual organic movement propelled by an electric motor.

From his workshop in rural Wiltshire in the Cotswolds, the artist just launched a Kickstarter for the meditative works. You can also see a larger version of “Wonder” inside the historic Malmesbury Abbey, and find more of Lawton’s projects on his site.
