Aeolian Shadow Shifter

A group of artists have begun to focus their attention origami tessellations and corrugations. These are folded patterns that play with light and shadows to create interesting and quite beautiful displays. It is frequently important to rotate these creations to capture the best display of light and shadow.
I have created a mechanism to rotate tessellations and corrugations. There are several unique aspects to this creation.
1. The mechanism is folded entirely from rectangles without glue,
2. The mechanism can be used to rotate and manipulate tessellation and corrugations.
3. The mechanism uses gears or cogs folded from a single sheet of paper.
4. The mechanism becomes part of the display or sculpture.
5. The mechanism is entirely wind powered.
6. You can compare up to three rotating tessellations at the same time.
I have named this mechanism the:
Aeolian Shadow Shifter
Here is a link to view a video of this sculpture.

I hope you enjoy this display
