these are not computer generated,
but rather made by a twin elliptical harmonograph (above)...

although the images which this device generates
are very complex, the concept is quite simple:
two heavy weights are suspended on a single pendulum,
and the paper which traces the movement is at
the exact focal point between these two weights...
the images are graphic illustrations of musical harmony.

hi monica,

thanks for featuring our friend rick's work .... it's funny, because we were thinking about sending you a link to our post as we thought you might like his art.
we have been following your blog for a little while now and you always find beautiful stuff.

thanks again,

sammy & glenn
