Wind Schnecke

5.2 x 2.5 feet Atelier
An aerometer drives a worm gear. In this case the gear wheel is fixed and so the worm together with the aerometer and a trail rotate around the geer wheel. The trail always rotates the whole sculpture out of the wind but the worm gear rotates it in the wind.
This happens very slowly.
