Using music, culture and physics
Without aiming a specific product or a field of work; This project comes from the genuine qualities of one of the most
wellknown materials- sand.
Rhythmos- "to flow"
Unlike a painting
or a piece of sculpture, which are compositions
in space, a musical work
is a composition dependent upon time.
The form affect directly on the functional purpuses of the spining top.
The combination of balance and speed determine the rhythm of the sand comes out of the object.
Spining Top is an object wich belongs
to a game of fortune in the juish heritage during the Hanuka Holiday,
it has different meaning and it is known in several cultures- east and west.
It was not in my intention yet it was an interesting invitation to involve a cultural aspect along the design.
