This mesmerizing kinetic, metal sculpture is better known as an interactive "flow toy". Flow Rings are very tactile as well as slightly addictive to play with and interactive. You can put your hands through it and run it safely along your arms (bare arms work best) and pass them from arm to another, or one person to another just for fun or in a dance. Running it along a long tube or prop (e.g. a cord) makes it look like a metallic soap bubble and is an intriguing way to observe the interlocking strands of metal in motion.
Place your palms on the top and the bottom of the Flow Rings. Twist while pushing gently together. The Flow Rings will spiral down into its flat position. They only twist in one direction so do not force as if the coils are pulled too roughly, it may deform and will not work as designed.
