Thursday's Tidbit

Um. Whoa. These pieces by Eske Rex are amazing, on every level. Not only are these finished works beautiful and provocative, but the method of creation is pretty crazy. These ball point beauties are created by a machine. Yep, a crazy Danish drawing machine.

I'll let the artist explain:

Drawing Machine is a construction involving two pendulums, each suspended from a tower construction and connected through “drawing arms” and moveable joints. A ballpoint pen resting on a drawing surface covered with paper is mounted at the point where the pendulums come together. The pendulums are set in motion by hand, and their movements are represented on the paper. The Drawing Machine serves two purposes: On exhibitions where the movements of the pendulums affect the entire room, and the experience engages the beholder’s body. While the rhythmic repetitions cause the beholder to pause, the drawing emerges on the paper, and as a tool where investigations on the relation between time and movement.
