Decorated under the swing of a pendulum, each of David Derksen’s Oscillation Plates are unique. Activated first by a human, then taken over by gravity, the ink filled pendulum oscillates over the plates, decorating them at the same time. The graphics left on the plates become a representation of this natural oscillation process – “revealing the hidden pattern that exist in nature” and the “randomness of the human that initiates the swing of the pendulum.” A fun play between maths and randomness, and a very cool process to watch.
