Test 1 of the Motor

This video is of testing the motor out for the first time with the sculpture. I am satisfied with the movement of the piece however the sound is too mechanical and I am going to try to soundproof the motor within the plinth base to muffle the sound as I feel it sounds like sharpening knives. This sound is creepy and eerie however that is not what I am primarily aiming for within this piece. I want the viewers to see and walk around the piece first before hearing a loud mechanical unpleasant noise. I am also going to weld and shape end of the moving steel tube inserting ball bearings inside so it will reduce the friction created on the cam going round which will allow the motor to move steadier and will silence the scraping evident within this video.
