I’m a local artist working on a public commission, and hoping to find some engineering help as soon as possible for a small kinetic sculpture project. Payment is negotiable.
The piece has been commissioned for an elementary school for the city of Washington DC. It’s essentially just a whirligig, but it needs to be designed for durability and minimal maintenance. I’m looking to hire someone to engineer a simple spinning mechanism and create shop drawings that can be given to my fabricator and to the city for approval.
The deadline on this is tight- I’d like to work out this kinetic element and have shop drawings in hand within a week or two.
Please get in touch with me as soon as possible if you’re interested in learning more. My website is below for further info and images of past projects.
