Back to my studio for another contraption! This one came from a meditation on the early mechanical works of Da Vinci and other cleaver mechanics. I built the leavers with the intention of finding mechanical satisfaction. Then I played around with the new toy to see where its possibilities lay. I hoped to capture the phase change of the levers across their arc and make an interesting rhythm piece. I have to say I love the effect sonically and I'll be developing this further
(See Discussion article "The Lone Genius" for related theory.)
