The Harmonograph: A New Exhibit at the Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library

The Harmonograph by Don Fitzpatrick

Harmonogram-27-mediumA harmonograph is a mechanical apparatus that employs pendulums to create a geometric image. The drawings it creates are called Lissajous curves. The harmonograph was invented in 1844 by Hugh Blackburn, a professor of mathematics at the University of Glasgow. The harmonograph used to create the images in this exhibit employs three pendulums to control the movement of a pen relative to a drawing surface. Two linked pendulums move a pen in a circular motion along one axis and the third pendulum moves the drawing surface in a rotary motion along a perpendicular axis. By varying the frequency and phase of the pendulums relative to one another different patterns are created.  Don Fitzpatrick built the harmonograph used in this exhibit based on several different designs in order to make a machine that could be portable and multi-functional.  When not being used as a drawing machine the device can be disassembled and used as a coffee table.  This exhibit features many different types of drawings (harmongrams) using a variety of inks, colors and paper. The exhibit will be on display through July.

About the Artist:
Harmonogram-18-mediumDon Fitzpatrick is the IT Specialist for the Dartmouth Biomedical Libraries and also a member of the Steering Committee for Twin State MakerSpaces, a non-profit organization currently in the planning and development stages of two makerspaces in the Upper Valley (The Claremont MakerSpace and The Upper Valley MakerSpace.)  Don enjoys spending his spare-time making stuff in his workshop, music studio, and kitchen.  Some of his recent projects include woodworking, microcontrollers, and synthesizers.

Art for Kids Exhibit at Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library

“Art for Kids” & DHMC Craniofacial Clinical Art Exhibit at the Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library

art-for-kidsThe Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is pleased to host a new collection of artwork made by children in the “Art for Kids” Program and the DHMC Craniofacial Clinic. Art for Kids (AFK) is a monthly art program at the AVA gallery in Lebanon, NH, for children with chronic medical conditions and their siblings. The dynamic and creative children work one-on-one with a volunteer student from the Geisel School of Medicine to create fun and magical pieces of artwork. The AFK program has since expanded to the DHMC Craniofacial Clinic with an interactive waiting-room arts program to keep the kids entertained during long appointments.

The exhibit will run from April 26, 2015, until the end of July and will display selected pieces of artwork made by the children over the past year. The collection is eclectic including everything from portraits, paintings and prints to sculptures and 3D installations.

New Artwork at Dana Biomedical Library

The Biomedical Libraries are pleased to announce that new works of art by the artist Jane Hammond are now on permanent display in the Dana Library.  Ms. Hammond has generously donated two of her botanical collages that use lithography, linocut, relief printing, digital printing, colored pencil, watercolor and gouache, hand cut and assembled on collaged Japanese papers to create unique flower arrangements.  The artist describes the process as a mime of the images: “Instead of an artist depicting a flower arrangement I have made vases, painted them, made a huge surfeit of flowers, cut them out and then arranged them to make a composition in the vase.”

Ms. Hammond was the Artist in Residence at Dartmouth in the spring of 2006. During her residency, she utilized Dana’s collections and staff to facilitate her work.  Ms. Hammond wrote about her work at Dana:

When I had my residence at Dartmouth one of the coolest things about it was the library privileges and all the librarians helping me. I spent hours and hours in the Dartmouth Medical Library and the librarians were super helpful. There were all these beautiful sets of books—the kind of taxonomies stemming from people going out into the world and assaying the mosses of Turkey, the orchids of Brazil. There was even a book on the lichens of Puerto Rico.  This period at Dartmouth helped the botanical collages be as good as they are.

We invite you to stop by Dana Library (37 Dewey Field Road, 3rd Floor) to admire these beautiful and unique works of art.
