Winged, kinetic rings that flap

Jeweler/metalworker Dukno Yoon makes beautiful, animated kinetic winged rings, sculptures and towers that flap when you flex your finger.

The contrast between metal structural form and natural feather, together with the repetitive and whimsical movements of fragile wings, provokes the imagination and evolves the intimate relationship between work and viewer/wearer.

Although the recent series, segmented wings have been focused on the formal challenge to engineer an intricate movement that simulates bird wings, these works are intended to be a series of poems in which I develope my own formal language, interpret the nature of wings, create various structural forms with movements, and share the metaphor, imagination, humor, with viewer/wearer.

    you made me put down my coffee to admire all the comments rife with sexual innuendo (along with that one guy who just blurts out the obvious)  and there’s none? none??  ah for the BoingBoing of old, with bananas and ukeleles nudge-nudge wink-wink… -sigh-
