exhibit design, development and fabrication

Custom Mechanics

Our mechanical interactives bring phenomena to life while engaging the body and mind. Years of experience have taught us how to create exhibits that will survive thousands of pulls, twists, openings, and closings.
Kinetic Ball Sculpture
Creative Kidstuff
Maple Grove and St.Louis Park, MN

We built two identical Kinetic Ball Sculptures for new Creative KidStuff locations in Minnesota and Iowa. They were conceived by the crazy folks at Architectural Alliance but designed and built by us. Both sculptures measure 30-feet long by eight-feet wide and take up about five feet of vertical space. Everything is set in motion by kids cranking a handle at floor level. Four choice points in each system make the movements appear random. Click on the video to watch this sculpture in action.
