Patterns from pendulums

The Museum recently hosted the wonderful Iron Genie ‘kinetic sculpture’, created by artist Anita Chowdry. Although the installation closed on 21 September 2014, we have made this short film about the work and its relevance to the Museum.

There are also more articles on this blog about the Iron Genie and its workings, and Anita’s own blog offers some deeper historical detail on the invention and development of the harmonograph, the 19th-century drawing device that inspired the creation of the Iron Genie.
