Precession

Precession
Photo Description:
Inspired by Berenice Abbott's photography of science, I captured the physical motion of precession of a pendulum, using a torch and long exposure. The result narrates the influence of gravity and friction and points towards a hidden beauty and harmony of the laws of mathematics and aesthetics. The distribution and densities of light resonate the idea of energy which was most influential in creating the image.
