Majestic Princess Cruise Ship Features Interactive Kinetic Art by Bruce Gray
This is "Journey," my new rolling ball sculpture for the Majestic Princess cruise ship. It's 60" x 100" x 6". Making a sculpture this wide, with only 6" of depth was a challenge. Also it will be behind plexiglas on a moving vessel, so it has to be reliable and most of the tracks are "sealed" so the ball cannot come off. This interactive kinetic sculpture features a hand crank which operates an Archimedes screw lifting system bringing the ball to the top to start it's journey. The enormous luxury ship will be based out of Italy and China.
