Kind of wind chimes

In German it is called “windspiele”. It is a sort of wind chime, but not necessarily producing sounds. The students were handed a rod of steel, a ball bearing and a disk of medium density fiberboard with a diameter of 40 cm from which they were to construct a device that somehow interacted with the wind. Any material could be added if needed. Finally the 12 “windspiele” was displayed in the garden next to the design workshop.

It is 10:30 in the morning:
