These drawings were made using a series of finely balanced pendulums that follow the curvature of the hemisphere and thus able to make intricate harmonic curves on the surface. By interacting with these self-built contraptions, the artist is able to build up a constellation of patterns on the hemispherical surface. The resulting objects are reminiscent of three-dimensional stellar maps or cosmological diagrams.
