Interactive Kinetic Sculptures Made from Popsicle Sticks by Joyce Lin
A student from the Rhode Island School of Design, Joyce Lin creates interactive kinetic contraptions out of simple materials like popsicle sticks and mylar. Although the process is meticulous and delicate, the sculptures are simple in form and function. Made up of parts designed to be set in motion by an internal mechanism, Lin's sculptures come to life with surprisingly realistic motion. Speaking about her work she says, "When people view and activate my sculptures, I would like them to feel a kind of childlike awe and wonderment while being reminded that we are part of an infinite chain of systems within systems."
