Kinetic sculptor Anthony Howe lives and works in a rural area in Eastsound, Washington surrounded by little more than trees, wind, and other natural elements that inspire his incredible kinetic sculptures.
Howe works primarily with stainless steel which he welds to create carefully engineered objects powered by the slightest breeze.
For the Amsterdam Light Festival, which goes on from now through January 2015, Italian design studio Aether & Hemera has created On the Wings of Freedom, a radiant cloud of hundreds of butterflies that hover above the ground. The dazzling installation can be found along the walking route of the festival, at Wertheimpark. Visitors with a smartphone are welcome to change the lighting effects which means they can manipulate the colors and patterns of light.
