My harmonograph wall

Observatory harmonograph smMy time in the actual Observatory is now over, so the work continues back in the studio, where I have put up all the harmonograph drawings that I made at the Science Centre. Each morning in the Centre I really valued the time between 9–10am, setting this simple instrument going in the quiet before the influx of schools at ten. Back here in the studio, I now have a chance to look at them all together to see which ones I might use. In my mind there is a link between how the pendula that control the drawing interact and how the planets circling our sun influence one another: a link between the harmongraph and the Kepler Orrery. Lots to explore.
