Pendulum Autographs: Drawing with Harmonic Motion – Art Exhibit at Matthews-Fuller Library

Don Fitzpatrick – Artist Statement

Harmonogram 1This exhibit features drawings created on a harmonograph drawing machine. A harmonograph is an interactive kinetic mechanism that employs pendulums to make geometric images. The images on display were created using a wide variety of inks and paper. The drawings are expressions of the frequencies at which the pendulums move. The frequencies can be altered by raising or lowering the weights on the pendulums, and they can be equated to sound frequencies – hence the name ‘harmonograph’. The first machine was created in the 1840’s as a scientific instrument and became popular as parlor entertainment as the century progressed.¹

Harmonogram 2The drawings in this exhibit were produced using two different machines – a three pendulum rotary harmonograph, and a two pendulum lateral harmonograph. I designed and constructed the three pendulum version a few years ago and quickly become engrossed by the science behind the motion and images it creates. The only issue is the significant amount of space the machine requires to operate.  So I decided to build the two pendulum lateral version a few months ago and have found that it is capable of producing images that are not possible with the larger three pendulum machine.

This exhibit will be on display through October 2016.

New Nature Drawings at Dana Library

Aliette K. Frank

Aliette K. Frank

Dana Biomedical Library recently added six colored pencil and graphite nature drawings by Aliette K. Frank to the East Reading Room.

Aliette Frank is a class of 2000 graduate in the Dartmouth College Biology Program. As an Environmental & Evolutionary Biology major, she first started drawing plant and animal species in the field on a research expedition to Africa to study mountain gorillas and chimpanzees in 1997. Since then she has enjoyed drawing many different subjects in her artistic and scientific work. Many of her interests spark from the colorful and uniquely shaped biota she discovered on Dartmouth’s Biology Foreign Study Program in Costa Rica and Jamaica in Winter 2000. Aliette’s PhD is in Sustainability & Education from The University of British Columbia (2009). Aliette is starting to write/illustrate children’s books about sustainability.

Art for Kids Exhibit at Matthews-Fuller Library

AFK16The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is pleased to host a new collection of artwork made by children in the “Art for Kids” Program. 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.

Art for Kids Program:

The exhibit will run from April 24, 2016, until the end of July and will display selected pieces of artwork made by the children over the past year.
