Still object in loud times...Without a sound, the metal point draws fascinating, ever smaller elliptical traces in the sand. Formations of countless layers of ellipses are produced. A gentle impulse starts the swing and one can experience and feel the inner peace which comes from the harmonious movement of the pendulum. With its electro magnet impulse –which can also be switched off- the pendulum moves continuously!

The “golden ratio” Modulon – a cube divided into the dimensions of the golden ratio. The golden ratio is achieved with a geometric construction that has a divisor of approximately 0.618 (the shorter part of a line segment has the same relationship to the longer part, as the longer part to the whole). Sixteen building bricks of seven different masses can be arranged to form many different proportions according to the harmonic principle.

Into the cube ...It requires a bit of patience, twisting, tilting and turning the eight individual cubes joined together by a rubber band and trying to make them into one large cube again. The printed lines serve as orientation but can also be confusing. Make the line run continuously over the cube or make it disappear inside - these are two special challenges. Or what can you produce by turning these eight flexibly connected cubes? This game is a real challenge indeed!
