Maker Faire Rome 2023

Il pendolo e la meraviglia

Since 2012 I have built various machines that shares the common feature to make unexpected and surprising things. For the Maker Faire Rome events of 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2022, I created an exhibition in my booth showcasing some machines that I called "Thaumachines." The purpose was to popularize the beauty of Science and to inspire visitors to explore the same boundaries between Science, perception, and Art that I once explored myself. Many of those machines were based on the careful and coordinated use of oscillatory motions. - Double pendulum - Multipendulum - Harmonograph - Laser sound visualizer This year, I will present an expanded version of the exhibition by transforming the harmonograph into a mechanical oscilloscope and creating a three-dimensional laser visualization of sounds.
