cacuts, 2 lazy susans, 2 dc motors, cactus, balloon, cardboard
by Richard Krantz and Tim Dalzell
Part of the Exotic Matter-exhibition.
The motors turn the cactus and the balloon in circles, when they meet up they are really close to each other. Close enough to cause tension but not close enough to burst the balloon.
