Pendulum for contemplatives
worth nothing, and doesnt even give the time
It sees the passing time and is transformed by it second after second,
its aspect changes endlessely and will be never the same.
Eternal present, free of any memory and unconscious of the future
The pendulum's oscillation is maintained by a mercury contact feeding two coils. The pendulum turns the disc 1/2 degrees clockwise everytime it goes to the right.
The balls location is always impredictible. The tiny avalanches are always due to only one ball, the weakest point of the ensemble. It quikly becomes a game to predict wich one will make them tumbling down. This spectacle happens about every 20 secondes
