It's Drawingmachine! Love at first sight, people. This amazing art is like getting a three-for-one special...sculpture, installation, AND drawing. Eske Rex created a construction involving two pendulums, each suspended from a tower construction and connected through "drawing arms" and moveable joints (check out the video). 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 movements of the pendulums affect the entire room, and the experience is totally engaging. While the rhythmic repetitions cause you to pause, the drawing emerges on the paper. Now that's some serious art.
