1. Compound Epicycles.

A series of arms of equal length are connected end-to-end. Each arm spins at a constant rate, indicated by the ratios in the captions. A pen has been attached at the end of each arm.

They tell us that prisons are over-populated. But what if it was the population that was being over-imprisoned?
