And yet it moves

This project is an attempt to visualize time in a sensible way by synchronizing the pendulum that has traditionally been used to accurately keep time and the modern day pendulum that is managed digitally.  In the principle of Isochronism of the pendulum discovered by Museo Galileo in seventeenth century, the oscillation period is two seconds in an environment without friction or air resistance. This time can be adjusted by changing the length of pendulum. ** Isochronism of the Pendulum: Oscillation period is equal regardless of its amplitude or weight.
