This Harmonogram was created by Ivan Moscovich in his home studio using an elaborate double-pendulum drawing mechanism of his own design.
Artist, inventor, author and Holocaust survivor, Moscovich patented his Harmonograph in 1967 and slowly honed the precise techniques required to master his innovative "cybernetic" approach to drawing. The machine produces two-dimensional oscillations which mathematicians refer to as Lissajous figures. Through variations of color, shape and composition, Moscovich was able to achieve a striking visual diversity in his images. The drawing process was time-consuming and required extensive experimentation to execute each concept successfully. For this reason, the artist never produced copies of his works.
Each signed Moscovich Harmonogram is unique in the truest sense of the word, there is no other like it.
