Selling Harmonograms as Unique Works of Art
Watching a drawing in progress; I'm wearing anaglyphic clip-on glasses to view special stereoscopic harmonograms. I've lost weight since this picture was taken...
My little corner of the parking lot. I always fence off the harmonograph for safety considerations; there is a danger that I'll misjudge a pendulum throw and the heavy weights and razor sharp gimbals can go flying in all directions. The step-stool folds into a “Franklin Chair”.
The overhead mirror allows people to observe a drawing in progress.
This graphic displays examples of actual foreign currency which features harmonograph generated security lines instead of the more usual fine lines generated by the mechanograph.
Rebecca got into the entrepreneurial spirit and set up a stand to sell lemonade and soft drinks.
Starting a drawing.
This shadow box display shows how to construct a simple glass pen similar to the pens used to create harmonograms during the Victorian Era; 1850-1890. The display also includes a vintage Venetian glass pen. I've designed several unique displays and teaching aids to augment the harmonograph exhibit.
The display table contains vintage harmonographs from my collection and other physics related toys.
