MOVA - Motion Within

About the work:
Pictured: Antique Beige Globe

"The MOVA Globe rotates peacefully and silently using only the energy from light and the force of the earth’s magnetic field. The MOVA Globe has an inner globe that rotates and is contained within an outer shell, which does not rotate, made of clear acrylic. The thin space between the inner globe and outer shell is filled with a safe, perfectly clear fluid that buoyantly supports the inner globe. The graphic features on the surface of the inner globe are magnified and appear to be on the surface of the outer shell giving the optical illusion that the outer shell is actually moving.A carefully designed, and highly efficient drive mechanism within the inner globe drives the rotation. Energy for the drive is provided by very advanced solar cells within the inner globe, illuminated by light passing through the graphic. The drive includes a magnetic element that reacts with the Earth’s magnetic field, much as a common compass does, to provide torque to drive the globe. All of these elements work together to create a beautiful and magical object perfect for any room."
