A pendulum swings through a space. A video screen, constituting its pendulum bob, carves its path through the exhibition space. From its ever-changing position it presents a view into a different scene. Although freely swaying through space it collides with objects; invisible, but audible. A computer traces the pendulum’s position and—in a computer model—embeds it into a mathematical world where it collides and interacts with objects. This interaction between the pendulum and its mathematical surroundings provides the source for a three-dimensional soundscape. Something is forced into motion. Slowly it returns to standstill. Next time things will behave rather similarly. Only the world in the computer changes.
