Björn Schülke designs objects that playfully transform live spatial energy into active responses in three-dimensional form. Delicate blue and white active sculptures powered and adorned by solar cells comprise Schülke’s Solar Kinetic Object series. Born from a world of spaceships, unusual scientific instruments and robots, these pieces speak powerfully to today’s environmental concerns. Each piece is unique– some employ tiny red blinking lights, bells or propellers. Exhibited as a group these sculptures react to available light energy and reveal an elegant and organic rhythm of movement.
