Renaissance building

November 23, 2011

From Tami Wedekind

Eske Rex‘s Drawingmachine is a sculpture involving two pendulums, “drawing arms” and a ballpoint pen resting on a drawing surface. The pendulums are set in motion by hand, and their movements are represented on the paper. Based on the Harmonium first invented during the Renaissance, Drawingmachine creates a drawing while altering the space through motion and sound (great sounds).  Each “performance” (and drawing) is unique.  I think da Vinci would approve.

    here is a pendulum set in motion by seismic activity. An unexpected natural performance. It looks corny compared to the sophisticated pen drawing. Is nature corny?
