Rotary Wheel Rings
In earlier mechanical tools, apparatus and implements, transparency in the technology enabled repair and adaption. This is lost in modern technology where sealed compartments and microchips prevent tinkering. This in turn can lead to shortened lives of technology that cannot be easily fixed.
I have an interest in how technology works and also how or if it is repaired. In this series of Rotary Wheel rings, I have focussed on the wheel, a simple and early technology that continues to perform a purpose in a multitude of applications. It is intended that the potential uses of the rings is easily imagined.
These rings were made in response to the Tincal Lab Challenge 2018 Jewelry and Technology.
