From small pieces standing 45 cm tall to large-scale outdoor installations measuring 15 meters in length, the fluid movements of Ralfonso’s dynamic kinetic sculptures often begin with a gentle breeze creating playful interactions at the hands of Mother Nature.
A perfect example of an environmentally interactive art piece is Ralfonso’s monumental ten-meter-tall Dance with the Wind, which was commissioned for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. This sculpture undulates with the gentlest breezes and the strongest winds to produce a poetic dance featuring a stack of five balls pushing a flat, round disk at the top of the vertical composition, which is counterbalanced by a weighted sphere at the base. Mirror-polished stainless steel enhances the viewer’s experience, its reflective qualities revealing its surroundings shimmering in the sun. Stop by the gallery to view the hypnotic smaller collector version standing 100 cm tall and limited to just 15 pieces.
