FOREIGN BODIES: NEW WORK BY CHRISTOPHER TROTTER

These new sculptures by Christopher Trotter are created from natural objects and discarded machinery. Drawn to the unique forms and weathered surfaces of these materials, Trotter’s creations appear to have lived a hard life performing the task for which they were invented. Since each creation is made by joining unrelated materials in an illogical yet seemingly plausible combination, we are left to ponder exactly what function they performed.

Wind Tubes

Design and build your very own flying creation to test in the Wind Tubes. See your creation take flight and soar to the ceiling and defy gravity by hovering high overhead… or just fall to the floor. It’s all about air and invention, with a little bit of mid-air mayhem.

Wind Tubes is a hands-on exhibition that challenges you to make a flying creation out of everyday materials and launch it into large, clear vertical tubes of moving air.

Plastic, paper cups, polystyrene, ping pong balls, propellers and more … all the materials you need are provided. But can your design overcome turbulence, drag, air resistance and gravity?

Wind Tubes is a fun, interactive exhibition for the whole family. There’s a special space for children under two to enjoy.
