Video: MÖBIUS stop-motion sculpture


Twenty-one large triangles animated by Melbourne, throughout Federation Square. MÖBIUS is a sculpture that can be configured into many cyclical patterns and behave as though it is eating itself, whilst sinking into the ground.

The result is an optical illusion and a time-lapse of people interacting with the sculpture and moving through Melbourne’s landmark location throughout the day.

MÖBIUS was animated over two weeks Friday, Saturday & Sundaybetween the 6th and 20th of May 2011.

    That’s pretty slick, but i can’t imagine the mind-numbing action of actually *doing* it. Thank god for other people’s patience :)

    Hey, that’s really weird, I never saw holes in the ground or anything, how’d they do that…?

    (I did see the lines on the sidewalk though, for when they were nudging each form over to the next position…. ;)
