Chimecco: Kinetic Wind Chime and Bridge Sculpture

What do you get when you combine wind chimes and a bridge? Here's a kinetic sculpture by Mark Nixon called Chimecco, which was recently exhibited at the Sculpture by the Sea in Aarhus, Denmark:

Made from 600 50mm diameter gold anodized aluminium pipes ranging in length from 120 mm up to 3750mm, the pipes are attached to the underside of a bridge, creating a sort of instrument that resembles a giant insect. On the top of the bridge are interactive nodes that allow people to “play” it. The instrument is completed by the combined interactions of human and natural movement, but it can never be experienced in its totality.
