Swinging Sticks Kinetic Energy Sculpture. As seen in the movie "Iron Man 2"! Swinging, flowing, noiselessly circling in constant motion, the arms of Swinging Sticks seem almost to defy gravity. Like a sophisticated double pendulum, they circle fluidly, creating a relaxing, almost hypnotic effect... rotating seemingly in contradiction to the laws of physics, changing directions and speed for no apparent reason.
