Offcanvas Section

You can publish whatever you want in the Offcanvas Section. It can be any module or particle.

By default, the available module positions are offcanvas-a and offcanvas-b but you can add as many module positions as you want from the Layout Manager.

You can also add the hidden-phone module class suffix to your modules so they do not appear in the Offcanvas Section when the site is loaded on a mobile device.

Cube Tower

Cube Tower is a wind-driven kinetic stainless steel sculpture, which will be highly recognizable due to its counter- rotating 5 cubes.

Light and Shadow play on the different angled faces, counter-pointed by the square wind - channels.

It can be lit with programmable color RGB LEDs from inside, so the wind-channels actually glow in different and changing colors, as the cubes rotate around their vertical axis.  At night, ground spotlights highlight the gleaming sculpture surfaces creating ever-moving light reflections.

An invisible internal vertical pole creates the vertical axis. Each cube is centered on high precision ball bearings, allowing it to turn easy. Due to the different orientation of the wind-channels, the cubes rotate in alternating directions. Due to the different size and weight (inertia) the cubes also rotate at different speeds.

Cube Tower was unveiled September 2012 at Changchun International Sculpture Park in China. It is only the second Kinetic Wind Sculpture in this, the largest Sculpture Park in the world, with over 600 large sculptures. The cubes rotate in alternating directions - see it in action here:
