Spinning…

Following on from yesterday’s ideas on Brain Fractals, today I’m using a washer and a cut-down felt pen to create more abstract doodles. These really are more random than the Spirograph images because once I’ve spun the top I have no control or choice over the image created. The results are more akin to random walk patterns created by Brownian Motion. I find the results very soothing. I want to make more of these.

I wonder about enlarged versions. Would I project and redraw them, or could I get a massive washer and use a giant marker pen. How would that work exactly? If the tip of the pen is not smooth and rounded then I’ll be battling friction. Hmmm…. Definitely food for thought there.
