Title, Opto short film.

Scupture short film: Opto | Phil Price. The kinetic sculpture “Opto” is by sculptor 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 Price’s workshop in Christchurch New Zealand.

The music; Mozart’s delightful violin sonata in E minor.
