Meet the Makers: Maurice Connolly

Maurice Connolly built a 300 lb steel sculpture and dropped it off a cliff. He pitted his art against gravity, just to see what would happen. The piece is a massive sphere called Ganymede- constructed from recycled wine barrel hoops and hundreds and hundreds of bolts. Once Maurice mastered the material and perfected the form, he turned his curiosity towards force, motion, and the nature of unpredictability. Maurice's freshly distorted sphere will be at Maker Faire Bay Area, May 21 & 22. You can meet him and ask about tensile strength, conical strips of steel, and what it feels like to drop your art off a cliff.
