This kinetic sculpture is named after the mechanical system which counteracts the effects of gravity on certain expensive analog watches. In fact, a more accurate title would be a gyro-turbillon since it has 3 axes.
The sculpture is activated by gently turning its handle and let it spin freely. Soon, the motion becomes chaotic causing its 3 separate subsystems to rotate randomly inside each other.
The sculpture measures about 3' x 3' x 3' and is supported by a tall column. It was acquired by Shab Levy in 2011 from its creator, the late Ken Patton, who died suddenly only two months after completing the sculpture.
