Our first stop was the Museum of Jurassic Technology. There were many interesting things, but my group enjoyed a piece titled “A Bell Wheel” from Musurgia Universalis. Kircher had done some research in music and acoustics. The music the bells made were a melody found in a manuscript from Sicily. “A Bell Wheel” was seen as something spiritual and sacred. My group liked it because it was as if sound was put in the form of art.
I took this picture while the wheel was spinning
This piece caught my eyes, it was displayed on a little frame, the wave figure kept on rolling; hence creating an 'ocean' atmosphere.
