For his latest kinetic installation titled Bits and Pieces, artist Nils Voelker repurposed 108 toy Hoberman spheres which he suspended from microcontrollers inside a space at NOME Gallery in Berlin. Once attached to motors, the spheres are then synchronized to various rhythms and patterns to create moving sequences that mimic living organisms. Watch the video below.
