A kinetic sculpture designed by Derek Hugger that deftly mimics the motion of a sea turtle gliding through the ocean.
The piece – with 600 parts controlling a range of synchronised tilts and movements – was only attempted after Hugger spent a ‘non-trivial amount of time watching and studying videos of turtles swimming.’

My girlfriend was walking the dog in the park just down from Dartry Mills [off Dartry Road close to its junction with Milltown Road], Dublin when she came across this turtle sitting in the gravel beside the [River] Dodder.
It is injured, bleeding and rather motionless. If anybody somehow lost their turtle or can identify the breed, we’d love for you to get in contact.
