Kinetic sculptures are fun, and to see art installations that interact with wind or water is fascinating to watch.

Even without the wind, the sculpture is interesting in the simple pattern created by artist Charles Sowers. Directional arrows are mounted on a blank wall, and they rotate with the touch of a breeze.
Sowers is an artist who also works to develop exhibits at the Exploratorium in the Randall Museum in San Francisco. His aim is to draw observers in to partake in a sense of wonder and delight at natural phenomena observed in the world.
“Charles has discovered a strong correlation between his process and that of the scientific experimentalist. Both build apparatus; scientists to probe the limits of their collective understanding and Charles to probe the boundaries of beauty, delight, and wonder.” – from Charles Sowers, The Tinkering Studio
