Constrained Wings

With its movable wings, this kinetic sculpture, titled “Constrained Wings,” is a part of Dukno Yoon’s ongoing investigation of the mechanics and engineering of flight in birds, namely the mechanics and engineering of wing motions. Yoon is inspired by the structure and movement of machinery and uses mechanical movement to create kinetic jewelry and objects that breathe life and vigor into the works while engaging and interacting with the wearer or observer.

‘Constrained Wings’ is a good example of the work of those young Korean artists who are currently experimenting with traditional principles of jewelry and metal craft and whose work has the potential to speak on a global scale through their medium of choice. It will add to the Museum’s existing modern jewelry collection and decorative metalwork, which this acquisition will enhance.
