Custom hanging mobile
For all the elements of the mobile to rotate freely, and the
mobile going down to the main floor (being visible from the
living room), the mobile would need to be about twice as
tall as it would be wide. Here’s the space (indicated in red)
that I see available to the mobile:
It would be about 10 feet tall and about 5 feet wide (leaving at least 7 feet from the floor of the
main floor, at least 7 inches space to the walls, and at least one foot space to the ceiling on the
Following are some ideas about what we could do with that space. Several hanging mobiles
in the photos you sent me have one or two branches, meaning the hanging mobile splits up into two or three
parts. While we could do this here, it would mean that the elements/pieces in the hanging mobile would have
to be rather small, since the mobile needs to be tall and somewhat narrow. I used the same colors as in
the photos you sent me, but they can be changed to whatever colors you pick. Look the ideas over and
let me know what you think, and we’ll take it from there.
This one is similar to the first photo you sent me.
Each element in this one can rotate independently.
This one would be more like a hanging sculpture as the separate
elements can not rotate independently from each other. However the piece
as a whole can rotate.
Similar to idea #2 but with circles. The whole piece can
rotate but not each element by itself.
My “Mobile 74” (following picture) is about twice as tall
as it is wide and would work great with the space available here.
I could make a bigger version of it, 10 feet tall, 5 feet wide, maybe add
some more pieces. Each element in this one can rotate independently.
Here’s a drawing of a custom variation with the same colors and a
bigger circle instead of a bigger square:
Mobile 62 and 77 (two following pictures) have the same basic structure and show
a couple more variations on the idea. Both of those could be stretched
out to 10′ by 5′ and additional custom elements could be added too.
Same goes for my “Mobile 68”, about twice as tall
as wide, and would work great as a custom 10’x5′ version with
the space available. The whole piece can rotate but
not each element by itself, except for the bottom three.
Same thing with some colors:
“Mobile 78” (following picture) could be stretched taller with
more custom elements added.
Each element can rotate independently, so sometimes it can look like this:
Here’s a custom possibility with a circle added in the middle:
