COLLOSAL HAND

Constructed from over 500 individual, custom designed stainless steel triangles, the giant bionic hand is an impressive feat in a stationary position.  Combining a collection of gas shocks and actuators representing the tendons, ligaments, and muscles of a human hand with programmed movements of an artificial central nervous system, the moving work of art creates an interactive experience to the inner workings of the human hand.  Standing nearly 30’ high, the hand is a featured exhibit of the outdoor expansion of the Science Mill in Johnson City, Texas.
