Geocentric Model - The Beginning - w/ Video

At the end of 2016, I got a commission from a man who's been an admirer of my work for many years. He suggested a geocentric model of the universe. As he says, "are you familiar with Aristotle' Earth centric solar system model? It's the one before the modern/correct Copernicus one. It has earth as the center and it's a bit confusing. I figure if anyone could figure out how to animate it, it would be you." I took that last part as a compliment - and a challenge, and, as you might know, I love a challenge!

I will be posting my in-progress pics here soon, but in the meantime, I put together a short video of the piece in progress.

As always, I want to put this out there..... if you have an idea for a one-of-a-kind work of art - kinetic or not - I'd love to talk to you about the possibilities. Let's collaborate - and come up with something cool.

Here's the video.......

If you like this video, and want to see more, please Subscribe to my Channel. I plan to make more of this type of video - where I'm explaining my process, ideas, and my journey on each piece.

Thanks for looking!
