The concept of music becoming art has taken a much more literal meaning with Robert Howsare‘s latest design project: Drawing Apparatus. It is simply composed with five elements: two record players, a mechanical linkage made with two articulated wooden arms, a marker, and a canvas. As the record players turn, the arm attached to each player moves, drawing beautiful geometric art abstractions on the canvas. With slight controlled variables like disc speed and arm length, the illustrations go in different directions and take various shapes. The process is quick and hypnotizing to watch.
Howsare is currently a graduate student in Ohio, so we’re definitely impressed with his structural design talent. IV Phases, another design spectacle of his, has been very well received.
