Drawing Machine

As part of the STEAM ReFill program, young people at Miller invented their own drawing machines using found objects.



Spirographs combine art and maths. The patterns that they create depend on three variables: the radius of the fixed disc, the radius of the revolving disc, and the location of the pen on the moving disc. Today, students at Miller experimented with spirographs by creating as many different patterns as they could in a short period of time.
