How to make a mobile
(Excerpted from "Interactivity Kit" by Timothy Rose)



THE SECRET: START FROM THE BOTTOM AND WORK TO THE TOP. There are many ways to design a work of hanging sculpture, and as many materials, but the assembly is always the same: start from the bottom.

1. SELECT & ARRANGE THE PIECES: Find, create the shapes you wish. Lay them on a large piece of paper. Draw lines connecting the bottom or end pieces.

2. BEGIN WIRING THE PIECES: Starting with the small end pieces first, then connecting the middle size systems together.

3. BALANCE THE TOP: The top bar is last. Connect the middle systems to the top bar, balance, and hang up your new creation.
