Drawingmachine by Eske Rex (and Spirograph)

Eske Rex created the kinetic sculpture "Drawingmachine" which is basically a gigantic spirograph powered by two weighted pendulums, even though he claims to have never heard of spirograph when he made it. It's pretty darn cool and produces stuff like this:
