Hypnotic GIFs of Anthony Howe’s Kinetic Wind Sculptures

Artist Anthony Howe's 3D kinetic sculptures are massive, moving pieces that utilize the united visual power of wind, metal, and mirrors. We first discovered his spectacular work earlier this year and now, thanks to VICE's The Creators Project, a series of equally hypnotic gifs (created by Jordan Kinley) have been released of several of Howe's pieces. They're also accompanied by some additional insight into the artist's workflow and inspiration.

Having first started his artistic career as a painter, Howe explains his decision to shift his focus by saying, “I just was bored with everything being static in my visual world. I wanted to see stuff flow.” As a result, he delved into the world of wind-powered kinetic sculpture, continually developing his designs on animation programs, constructing three-dimensional blueprints, that are then translated to his cutting program, allowing for large, machine-cut pieces of curved metal.

Now, after decades of working on his craft, Howe reveals that he plans to create the largest kinetic wind sculpture in the world (measuring 30 feet wide, 30 feet deep, and 25 feet high) in time for next year's Burning Man.
