Orbital Resonance Turntable.

With the initial concept of modelling the orbital resonance of jupiters relationship with its moons Ganymede, Europa and Io, this project also progressed into an object which plays three-dimensional records, acting as a turntable extension.

In collaboration with Chih-Yang Chen and Danila Luppino.
Using a turntable to rotate a circular milled landscape which translates to the vertical motion of three concentric rings of rising and falling rods. The rods rotate to the same ratio as Jupiter’s moons.
This is a model of three-way orbital resonance, a phenomenon where planetary moons exert a regular, periodic gravitational influence on each other.
The only known example of this in our Solar System are the three moons of Jupiter; Ganymede, Europa, and Io which are in a 1:2:4 orbital relation, a stable and self-correcting system.​
