Jester is a kinetic sculpture made completely from recycled found metal objects. "Kinetic" means energy in motion. The top part of the sculpture balances on a single pinhead resting on the bottom half of the piece. The two halves are only connected by gravity. There is less than 1/64th of an inch joining the two halves allowing almost zero friction between the pieces. The top piece is very wide, allowing it to spin for such a long time.
This piece has to be seen in action to be appreciated, so please watch the video.Jester makes an outstanding conversation piece
