Glossary investigation: Pendulum

Unbalance: Pendulum

1818 Lord Byron Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

        Man!
        Thou pendulum betwixt a smile and tear

        Mood swings
        Erratic
        Unstable
        Hysterical
        Unreliable
        Unequal
        Unbalanced


Pendulum still

Notes: Inspiration for this came from seeing Alexander Calder’s 1936 work Tightrope at the National Gallery of Victoria. My gallery photos didn’t come out well – better to look on the Calder Foundation website www.calder.org/work/by-category/standing-mobile.
