Title, Opto short film.

Scupture short film: Opto | Phil Price. Published on Apr 27, 2014 The kinetic sculpture “Opto” is by Phil Price of Christchurch, New Zealand. Commissioned by the Moreton Bay Regional Council and installed in 2011 at Redcliffe, QLD, Australia.

As the title suggests, this sculpture is about looking. It is a focal point, while looking at the sculpture you can’t help but see through to the environment beyond. The giant pair of round frames are placed where the land meets the sea and move in response to how the wind is blowing. Opto serves as a celebration of this beautiful place: past present and future.

Opto’s movement is entirely wind powered. It was made of composite materials and steel in Phil’s workshop in Christchurch New Zealand. Private, public and corporate commissions undertaken world-wide.

The video is made for Phil Price by Thomas Rands and Shaun Waugh (a collaboration otherwise known as Sparkling Duet).
